Catholic Education

Welcome to Catholic Education in the BHNCDSB!

BHNCDSB welcomes ALL secondary students and families! You may have attended one of our Catholic elementary schools... or maybe you come to us from another school system, Board or even area. We are happy that you have chosen us to support you in your secondary journey!

The promise of Catholic Education is that a “true encounter with Jesus can and does take place, each and every day within our Catholic schools” (Renewing the Promise, Pastoral Letter for Catholic Education p.15). We are called to walk alongside and accompany the students entrusted to our care. We do this by building relationships and community: a place for all, where everyone belongs. In our contemporary culture, we prepare our students for joyful discipleship by living the values of the Gospel. They become peacemakers and witness to social justice by putting their faith into action engaging with the local and global community.

The Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board is a model learning community, widely recognized as distinctively Catholic. As a Catholic school system, our commitments are rooted in faith. With a focus on Belonging, Teaching and Learning, and Wellness for all, we provide our students and staff with the tools for realizing their fullest potential, while also instilling a life-long commitment to the community.
