​​​​​​​​​​​Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations

In our Halton Catholic schools, we value the whole child, and create conditions that support the spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional well-being of all students so that they may fulfill their God-given potential.

Students in our Halton Catholic secondary schools are called to embrace the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations as they work towards their diploma. These expectations define what students are expected to know, do and value when they graduate from our Catholic schools.

A Catholic school graduate is expected to be:

  • a discerning believer formed in our Catholic Faith Community
  • an effective communicator
  • a reflective, creative, and holistic thinker
  • a self-directed, responsible, lifelong learner
  • a collaborative contributor
  • a caring family member
  • a responsible citizen
