Catholic education in Ontario brings the Gospel to life for thousands of students across the province. Youth in Catholic schools are empowered to achieve their full potential with an approach to education that recognizes the unique God-given gifts of each child. Our schools offer a caring and inclusive learning environment that nurtures the academic, spiritual and physical development of every student.
My Catholic high school gave me a safe place to raise issues… and fostered an environment to grow as a person.
Catholic schools have been part of the fabric of this Province, for over 170 years.

Faith in our Future

Catholic education is about Gospel teachings and the way those teachings come to life in our Catholic schools and help to inspire students to be transformative in the interactions with people and in the decisions they make to enhance lives and the world around them.

For more than 80 years, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) has safeguarded and promoted the interests of Catholic education in Ontario. We are the central source of information about government funding and initiatives affecting Catholic education.
