School History And Tradition

St. Alphonsus Catholic School was founded in 1969 in order to serve an expanding Catholic community in this residential section of midtown Toronto. The older Catholic schools in the St. Clair West area, Holy Rosary and St. Clare, were bursting at the seams, so it was excellent foresight on the part of the school board to purchase the property and build a new school. The solemn and official blessing of the new building took place on November 22, 1970. 


The school is located on a quiet side street off St. Clair Ave. It is a well-maintained facility, with spacious classrooms and three separate play areas – one for kindergarten children, one for the primary and junior grades and one for intermediates and seniors. The school board, the City of Toronto, and the parent council have been working together over the last few years to redevelop the property surrounding the building.  So far, two of the three play areas have received a facelift, including a new play structure, basketball hoops, benches and an outdoor amphitheatre.


The school population is diverse, reflecting the multicultural nature of the neighbourhood and the universal ideal of the Catholic faith. The school motto on our crest is: trust, friendship, and love. The welcoming atmosphere of the school is apparent as soon as you enter the building.
