The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board has a rich 165 year history of providing quality Catholic education to our students. We are proud of our history and our accomplishments and know that our future in the 21st century learning is full of hope.
Located in mid-western Ontario, the Board encompasses historic Goderich and the Lake Huron shoreline with rich productive agricultural land and several small rural communities. At the southerly end, Stratford anchors Perth county with its world-renowned Shakespeare Festival. The counties of Huron and Perth are part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of London.
The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board is one of the highest achieving Boards in the province of Ontario. We are very proud of teaching excellence across our schools guided by the principle that “students really do come first”.
For our approximately 4,500 students, their experience in our Catholic schools is more than academic achievement. Christ’s teachings inspire our staff to see each child as a precious gift and a sacred responsibility. Within the rich heritage and tradition of our Catholic faith, our 500 staff members strive to call forth and develop in our young people all the necessary skills, competencies and attitudes (rooted in the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations), that will enable them to live a faithful and fulfilling life in contemporary society.
Huron-Perth Catholic Schools are:
PLACES OF BELONGING.
PLACES OF RESPECT AND JUSTICE.
PLACES OF HOPE.
PLACES OF CELEBRATION.
PLACES OF QUALITY LEARNING AND TEACHING.
