Principal's Message

I am very excited and honoured to be the new principal at Brebeuf College School.  I have been so blessed and fortunate to have been warmly welcomed into the Brebeuf community by students, staff, and parents.  In the short time that I have been here, I have already seen the kindness, respect, enthusiasm, and great sense of pride in our students, along with the hard work and dedication of the staff, and the unconditional support of parents.


Our school is a true community of faith, grounded in gospel values and social justice.  As a staff, we adhere to the TCDSB Catholic Graduate Expectations, and encourage our students to live their lives with compassion, empathy, and integrity.  

We pride ourselves on an inclusive environment, welcoming all students to our diverse community.  Our chaplaincy and religion departments offer several retreats for students to take part, in addition to an annual pilgrimage to Rome.  In addition, a daily communion service is held in our chapel, First Friday and school-wide masses are celebrated regularly, the rosary is said with all of our students, and the sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at Advent.


Our academic standards and expectations are very high.  We continually encourage our students to strive for greater goals, and to persist and work hard to achieve these goals.


At Brebeuf, we offer three Specialist High Skills Majors in the following areas: Arts and Culture; Information and Communication Technology; and Health and Wellness. We also offer an Extended French program and AP prep courses.


Student life would not be complete without co-curricular activities.  At Brebeuf, we proudly offer a multitude of athletic activities for our students, with a dedicated staff volunteering their time to coach.  As well, the school offers a number of clubs and committees, focusing on a variety of topics such as leadership development, the arts, debating, and other past-times.


Our facility provides a beautiful environment for learning.  In addition to our traditional classrooms, we have numerous computer and tech labs, a library/learning commons, a theatre, a gym, and a chapel.


I look forward to meeting you – students, parents, and members of the community.  


God bless you all.
