Founded in 1974 by the Basilian Fathers, Father Henry Carr Catholic Secondary School is a co-educational, semestered school located in northwest Etobicoke.
The area is a residential neighbourhood with a Catholic Elementary School (St. Dorothy), a hospital (Etobicoke General), and a community college (Humber College) in close proximity.
The housing around our school includes individual dwellings and town-homes. Our school has a longstanding partnership with St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church, the parish church. School facilities consist of a newly-renovated, air-conditioned building which features a new leadership centre, dramatic arts studio, ME/DD room, and cafetorium.
Our school has a rich tradition of academics, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Numerous championship banners adorn the gym walls. Our dramatic productions, art exhibits, drum-line and musical performances are visible demonstrations of our school’s spirit.
Our school is also rich in community spirit. The saying “At Carr, We Care” is reflective of the day-to-day operation of the school.
Our school motto, “Domine ut videam” - “Lord that I might see,” expresses the goal of the Henry Carr community - to promote, in the fullest sense, each student's growth as a person.
