Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB)

In the Toronto Catholic District School Board, we take great pride in serving the diverse needs of students and their families. In community with parents, local parishes and our educational staff, TCDSB schools offer safe and caring learning environments, which reflect Catholic tradition and values. We envision students who are formed in Catholic faith; apply Christian values to life’s opportunities, challenges and choices; pursue academic excellence and strive to be the best they can be.

At the heart of Catholic education is the person of Jesus. Faith development is integral to every part of Catholic education, as students are called to respect the dignity of all human persons in a caring community. We looked forward to welcoming new students into our vibrant Catholic system!
