Principal`s Message

St. Mary Catholic Academy is a progressive academic Catholic secondary school situated in the heart of Bloordale.  We were founded by the Sisters of the Faithful Companions of Jesus and we continue their mission to educate the whole student as reflected in the school motto, “that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10).   This motto conveys the importance of providing students with a strong academic foundation that is blended with the TCDSB Catholic Graduate Expectations and competitive athletic programs.


As a middle-sized school, the atmosphere is very friendly and our students have the advantage of  increased contact with the teachers for a richer classroom experience.   


St. Mary Catholic Academy maintains high standards of academic excellence in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) in grades 11 and 12, our pre-IB or enriched courses in grades 9 and 10.  


We are also very proud of our Automotive SHSM program which prepares students for an Automotive Apprenticeship after graduation at well-known car dealerships in the GTA.


St. Mary Catholic Academy is ‘technology-rich’ with over 100 Chrome books in our Learning Commons and three computer labs.   Our teaching staff provides differentiated instruction that reflects the changing world of work through 21st century learning skills such as collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication.  We also have well-established enrichment opportunities with the University of Toronto, Ryerson and University of Waterloo.


Our students are committed to the Catholic Graduate Expectations and are active-participants in St. Anthony Parish and in several community-out-reach opportunities such as the Scott Mission, food banks and sandwich patrol in Bloordale.


St.Mary Catholic Academy is a small and friendly community that supports academic success and provides opportunities for leadership and athletics alongside programming the offers support to those students with Special Education Needs.  Our Special Education programming ranges from Intensive Support programming to our STARS students who are fully integreated with modeate support.  As Pricipal of St. Mary Catholic Academy I am very proud of the students and honored to serve in such a beautiful and diverse community.
