Toronto Catholic District School Board

School History And Tradition

Madonna Catholic Secondary School was founded by the Faithful Companions of Jesus, a religious order of sisters--on the tenets of faith, charity and justice, ideals which all who inhabit Madonna are encouraged to mirror in their daily lives. In 1963, the order opened Madonna High School to 75 girls but this number rapidly increased to more than 700 as the program and facility expanded. The F.C.J. tradition has always been “to communicate and give witness to Gospel values and attitudes, to emphasize education in faith; a faith that sees and discerns reality from the point of view of the Gospel and confronts reality with the Gospel.” The school was named after Madonna, Our Lady, whose virtues of love, service, generosity, chastity and humility continue to inspire and guide the actions of the Madonna community.
