About Us 

St. Gerard Majella and St. Philip Neri Catholic Schools have come together to form our newest Toronto Catholic District School, St. André.  Both St. Gerard Majella and St. Philip Neri Catholic Schools are steeped in a tradition of excellence.  St. Philip Neri was founded in 1953 on what was then called Ward Avenue which eventually became Beverly Hills Drive.  As population grew in the area, there was need for another Catholic School to serve the area north of Wilson Avenue and West of Jane Street  and in 1971 St. Gerard Majella was built. 


For decades both Catholic Schools faithfully served their communities teaching their students about Jesus Christ and the Gospel Values.  This year we will mark the closing of both St. Gerard Majella and St. Philip Neri as we move to our new site St. André.  Although we are sad to have to say good bye to our former homes, we look forward to moving into our new state of the art building and beginning a new and better tradition of excellence in Catholic Education.  I know that you will join the current staffs of SGM and SPN as we all come together as a TEAM to make this transition to our new site on Yvonne Avenue.  We look forward to serving the needs of our Catholic Community for years to come.
