Toronto Catholic District School Board

About the TCDSB
 
Welcome to Toronto’s Catholic Schools
At the Toronto  Catholic District School Board, we teach more than the basics. Through a Christ-centered vision and in partnership with parents, parishes and the community, we serve students from diverse cultural, linguistic and ethnic backgrounds in Canada’s largest and most dynamic city. TCDSB educates close to 90,000 students in 201 elementary and secondary schools.
The Toronto Catholic District School Board is proud to serve students from diverse cultural, linguistic and ethnic backgrounds through a broad  range of programs and services. Working in partnership with parents, local parishes and the wider school community, TCDSB schools offer a safe and caring learning environment,   which reflects Catholic tradition and values.
Toronto’s Catholic schools follow the provincial curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Education, however the objectives of TCDSB schools are to enable students not only to reach their academic potential, but to develop spiritually and emotionally as well. TCDSB schools strive to be true faith communities, where programs reflect the teachings of the Catholic church, where prayer and reflection are an intrinsic part of each school day, and where students have opportunities to put their faith into action through their interactions with staff, their fellow students and the wider community.    
 
Religious Education
The Religious Education Program enables students to develop a basic knowledge of their faith tradition, as well as attitudes  that encourage a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Chaplaincy teams in the secondary schools play a vital role in the development of a sense of Christian community and the celebration of faith through prayer groups, liturgies and prayer services, as well as through service to others through peer support groups, mission groups, special needs projects and community outreach to the elderly and disabled.   
 
Student Code of Conduct
The discipline in Catholic schools is designed to train both mind and character. Principals and teachers—in partnership with parents and parishes—set standards of behaviour for students to help them achieve self-discipline. All schools, with the assistance of their Catholic School Advisory councils, have created a student code of conduct which reflects TCDSB’s Safe Schools policies and the Province's Code of Conduct.     

Uniforms
All secondary school students are required to wear the uniform of the school that they attend. The uniform at each school has been developed in consultation with the school community. Although the policy on uniforms does not extend to elementary schools, there is a dress code in place in all TCDSB schools.
