Toronto Catholic District School Board


The primary aims of the English curriculum at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts are the consolidation and development of competent writing skills, and the fostering of a lifelong appreciation of language and literature. Literature provides the window into the history of human experience and imagination; language provides the means to interpret and articulate students’ own ideas, and those of others.
Throughout all English courses, the art of oral and written communication will be emphasized; skill acquisition from grades 7 through 12 will occur on a logical and challenging continuum. Opportunities for creative expression and specific literary projects will be provided at all levels.
Beyond the goal to instill in students a love of reading and an appreciation of good literature, is the desire to generate within them a positive self-profile, sensitivity to others and a deeper understanding of Christian principles and Catholic doctrine as they relate to the literary themes studied. Every year students are invited to participate in a full day excursion to experience a live production at The Stratford Festival.
