Quick summary:

  • Catholic schools are faith-based schools associated with the Christian denomination of Catholicism. Most Catholic schools, though, don’t require their students to be either Catholic or Christian.

  • In Canada, there are both public and private Catholic schools. Public Catholic schools are fully funded by the government and supervised by the Catholic School Board.

  • Private Catholic schools have lots of benefits. For instance, they provide a strong education in Catholicism, dedicated teachers who tailor instruction to individual learning needs, a close-knit community of peers and teachers, and an intensive and enriched dual-track curriculum.

  • Different schools have different approaches, policies, cultures, and developmental priorities. You should explore any prospective school closely, to determine whether it’s the right fit for your child and family.

  • We list private Catholic schools on this site. Moreover, our parent discussion forum allows you to discuss options and get answers to your questions.
