History & Tradition

St. Joachim Catholic School opened its doors in September 1963. Hundreds of people attended the solemn opening and blessing on December 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Up until 1963 the geographical area bounded by Victoria Park Avenue on the west, Eglinton Avenue to the north, Kennedy Road to the east and Lake Ontario to the south was served by three separate schools--Our Lady of Fatima, Saint Maria Goretti and Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Schools. Rapid growth in the area between these three schools in the late 1950s and early 1960s led to the construction of St. Joachim to ease overcrowding.
From the very beginning, St. Joachim School picture of St. Joachimestablished an excellent reputation for providing the students with a well-rounded education. Today we continue to provide the student with an excellent core program, and offer the children many opportunities to develop their skills in co-curricular activities in the arts, academics, and athletics.
St. Joachim was the husband of St. Anne and the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Although little is known about his actual life, St. Joachim, together with all the saints, stands as a role model of a person who heard God's word and responded to it in the daily actions of his life. At. St. Joachim's school, both the staff and the students are committed to the integration of our Catholic Christian beliefs into the total learning experience.
