The transition from elementary school to secondary school is an exciting time for students and their families. Secondary Schools in the Halton Catholic District School Board offer programming for students in Grades 9-12 that is open to both Catholic & Non-Catholic students.
Our school provides opportunities that meet the needs and aspirations of all learners in a supportive, creative and innovative learning environment.
