Ensuring an education that is equitable and inclusive, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board strengthens our Catholic Educational System on the Pillars of Discipleship, Scholarship and Stewardship. Our schools and our strategic initiatives are built on the foundation of these pillars:
As a community of learners, created in the image of God, we inspire and nurture strong communities of faith with all partners in Catholic education – home, school, parish and community. We articulate, share and celebrate our Catholic values and traditions through our lived “Faith in Action”, proudly professing and bearing witness to our faith. We sustain healthy and nurturing communities of belonging that are safe, caring and respectful.
In the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, we believe that all students can learn, and our mission is to enable each and every student to learn effectively, to reduce achievement gaps and to improve learning outcomes for all, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and other historical forms of marginalization
Our school communities have collaborative cultures in which teachers, support staff and administrators work as a team to establish initiatives that will ensure success for all. Abandoning our comfortable practices and assuming new ways of working and learning requires all of us to take risks. It calls us to leave our world of independence and enter into new forms of dialogue and collaboration with our co-workers.
