OUR CATHOLIC VALUES
The Toronto Catholic District School Board is an inclusive learning community rooted in the love of Christ. We educate students to grow in grace and knowledge and to lead lives of faith, hope and charity.
- in the worth and dignity of every person
- in the critical role that our Catholic schools play in promoting Gospel values, social justice, environmental responsibility, human solidarity and the common good
- that high standards and expectations foster greater achievement
- that people thrive in a safe, healthy and compassionate environment grounded in respect for the diversity of every person,
that teaching is responsive to individual needs
that teaching and learning should be rooted in research and evidence
that each of us shares responsibility for creating collaborative communities of learning
that equity, diversity, accessibility and inclusivity are integral to the Catholic community
that the 21st century competencies – collaboration, real world problem solving and innovation, knowledge construction, skilled communication, self-regulation and the use of information communication technology for learning, are essential.
Our vision of Catholic education invites each one of us– parents, students, teachers, principals, chaplains, support staff, trustees, clergy, supervisory personnel— to work
together as a community of believers committed to putting the values of our faith into practice in the daily life of the school, the home, and in all of society.
