Michael Power•St. Joseph, a co-educational school of over 2000 students, was founded by two religious communities: the Basilian Fathers and the Sisters of St. Joseph. In our school community, students meet Christ sacramentally in school and class liturgies, and come to know the "good news" in their theology classes. In pursuing scholarship, they come to an awareness and appreciation of God's creation.
The school year is divided into two full semesters. Our Special Education program is based on an inclusive model of support for students with a wide variety of learning needs including both developmentally disabled and gifted students. Other important programs are Extended French, Co-operative Education, and English as a Second Language.
The athletic program encourages physical fitness and desirable attitudes towards sports and recreation. Art and Technology students have several opportunities to participate in exhibits and performances. The student newspaper, the yearbook, peer ministry are popular activities. Students participate in many other clubs and a variety of sports. Involvement is characteristic of this school and new students should plan to participate.
Students wear a grey, white and navy uniform. The school colours are maroon and gold.
