Toronto Catholic District School Board

 Principal's Message

What is the "Epiphany of our Lord"? The short answer is quite simply: The Epiphany celebrates God's revealing or manifesting of Jesus' identity as true God, Messiah, and Savior of the world. It not only commemorates the fact that Jesus appeared to save us, but that God revealed the identity of Jesus to the world.
Throughout his mission on Earth, Jesus revealed Himself to people in many forms and manners. He was always caring and generous to the poor and suffering, and especially to children. After days of travelling and talking to large crowds of people, Jesus entered one such town and was swarmed immediately by children. Some tried to hold back the children, but Jesus said to them, “Let the children come.” His words and the way he lived His life resonate throughout this school – We are here to serve and in doing so, we say “Let the children come.”
Our understanding and philosophy of education is inseparable from our understanding of the very nature of our school system based on our Catholic beliefs and traditions. Thus, we infuse ourselves with the Gospel message and spirit. This Christ-centered philosophy permeates through all of our interactions with students, parents, and all our community partners, as we grow in discipleship to love and serve others.
Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Academy is built upon creating a positive and safe school culture. Driven by Gospel values, we continue to advocate and work towards maintaining a healthy and engaging atmosphere that promotes mutual respect and concern for the welfare of others. Regardless of one’s learning style, we strive to integrate students into the regular classroom. We value differentiated teaching strategies and forward-thinking to assist students with a variety of challenges in order for all students to meet with success at school and in life.
Understandably, it is faith that is at the core of our system. It is fitting that the Toronto Catholic District School Board’s next three-year pastoral plan continues for 2015-2018 with “Together with One Voice: Harmonizing our FaithThrough Family, Parish and School".  This year, we focus on the family.
