Catholic secondary schools in Canada provide high-quality, well-rounded education within an involved, supportive Catholic community. These schools combine both traditional and innovative educational programming with an approach rooted in Catholic values, ideals and beliefs. For instance, many Catholic secondary schools integrate community service and volunteerism as part of the academic curriculum.
Catholic secondary schools have a long and prestigious history in Canada and offer a unique opportunity for personal growth and fulfillment. Canadian Catholic secondary schools attract students from all over the world, including Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. They offer special help and classes for English as a second language (ESL) and French as a second language (FSL) students, as well as world-class instruction in all other subjects.
Secondary education in Canada falls under provincial jurisdiction, and the relationship of Catholic secondary schools with the regular public school system varies considerably from province to province. Catholic secondary school graduates receive a fully credited provincial high school diploma, recognized at both the national and international levels.
There are Catholic boarding schools and Catholic day-schools, and tuition may range from $8,000 to $12,000 depending on the school. Tuition assistance is often available for those who have the academic credentials to get in, but who may not be able to afford the cost. For day-schools, help with international student accommodation or homestay within the community is also often available.
