About Us » Mission


For more than 160 years Catholic schools have enriched communities through the education of students rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is our faith in Jesus Christ that is the foundation of our system of education.  We want our students to encounter the Lord in their studies, to encounter His goodness and His love, His compassion, and His concern in every aspect of their learning, development, and experience.

“What do I desire?
What do I want?
Why do I speak?
Why do I live?

if not for this reason:
that together we might
live with Christ.” 

                           … St. Augustine

The vision statement for the Bruce Grey Catholic District School Board is...

Committed to a vibrant Catholic education, we ensure quality learning experiences through community partnerships that nurture each student in body, mind, and spirit and embrace the teachings of Christ, giving witness to Gospel values.

We Believe…

In being Christ-centred in all that we do, ensuring that Catholic values and teachings are woven through every dimension of the students’ learning experience, giving particular focus to social justice and living a faith-filled life.


In the constant striving for excellence in everything we do through continuous improvement strategies and being progressive and future-oriented in our planning and change management approaches.


Each child is a gift from God and has the potential to grow, to develop and to contribute. Each person is worthy of our respect, is to be included and is to be treated fairly and with dignity.


Our staff and volunteers are our most important resource.  It is through their commitment and dedication that Catholic students can deepen the practice of their faith and realize their individual potential.


In the importance of collaborative strategies and partnerships that have the capacity to bring all the community’s resources together to support the learning and development of each student.


In being accountable to our stakeholders for the resources that we use, the decisions that we make and the outcomes that we achieve.

Catholic Culture of Deep Caring

The Catholic faith is not only part of our curriculum within Catholic schools.  It is a way of life and being which we strive to make real and tangible, in every aspect of our shared life.  Several years ago, in consultation with our parent community, deanery, staff and students, we identified ten key virtues reflecting the qualities of character which we desire to see alive in all persons who comprise our Catholic educational communities.  Although all of these virtues, and others as well, are integral to our life throughout the year, we have chosen to focus on, and practice in a particular way, one virtue each month.
Virtues of Deep Caring
In addition, the many local and international charity and social justice causes supported by staff and students in our schools, reflect a truly Catholic Culture of Caring.  Just a few of the many organizations supported by our schools are: the Holy Childhood Association, Development and Peace, Friends of the Orphans Canada, Habitat for Humanity, the local Food Banks, and Free the Children.
