To support our students in achieving academic excellence and meeting the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations: 
  • Students will meet or exceed the provincial average in literacy and numeracy as measured in Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) assessments;
  • Students will exceed the provincial average in credit accumulation and graduation rate;
  • Staff will implement effective assessment practices (for/as learning) that incorporate learning goals, co-created success criteria and provide descriptive feedback to support student learning;
  • Staff will share assessment practices with parents to ensure parent engagement with a common understanding of assessment for/as learning.

 

To support our students’ ability to apply critical and innovative thinking in all subjects we will:
  • Use evidence-based teaching and learning strategies to provide students opportunities to become discerning believers, effective communicators, reflective thinkers, self-directed learners, collaborative contributors, caring family members and responsible citizens;
  • Use differentiated instruction to ensure that individual learning needs are accommodated and to engage students fully in their learning;
  • Support investments in technology that continue to foster digital literacy, creativity, innovation and collaboration.
 

To create welcoming, healthy and equitable learning environments for all students:

  • Provide all students with equitable access to learning and technology and strive to close the opportunity gap so that the most vulnerable students achieve their full potential;
  • Strive to ensure that the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of all students are met;
  • Strive to ensure that all students are eating nutritionally and are physically fit;
  • Provide all students with safe, healthy learning environments by promoting a positive school climate, inclusive and accepting of all pupils, and by promoting the prevention of bullying.
