About Us

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 townhouses. 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 cafeteria.

Our school has a rich tradition of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Numerous championship banners adorn the gym walls. Our dramatic productions, art exhibits, drumline 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.
