I am proud to announce that our Board of Trustees approved our new Vision, Mission and Values statements and Multi-Year Strategic Plan 2020-2025 at a Special Board Meeting August 11, 2020.

The new Multi-Year Strategic Plan is the culmination of work that began with my first school visits in February 2019 and ended June 2020 with the outstanding efforts of the Senior Team and central staff.  

Thank you to the MYSP Steering Committee for your commitment in overseeing and supporting our Board's process in the development of our new vision, mission and values statements and strategic priorities.   

Our new strategic plan is our public declaration that while much has changed, our commitment as a Christ-centered organization has not. We have been called to serve our communities through our passion and skills around Catholic education. It is our hope that the lives we touch will be filled with dignity, love and inspiration to explore their unique calling.

The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board is committed to focusing on our new mission, vision and values to use our many blessings and resources to be more than just a great Catholic education system. We commit to creating communities of learning. As we prepare to support our students and staff in a new future, we now know that learning can happen in a classroom, around the kitchen table and in front of a screen. We have also seen that successful learning demands human connection, acknowledgement of individual passions and the celebration of accomplishments.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
