Our mission is founded on four pillars for success

At the Ottawa Catholic School Board, all students are inspired and guided to realize their spiritual, social and academic potential, and to take their place in the world as thoughtful, well-rounded citizens. The mission of the Ottawa Catholic School Board is to provide all our students with quality education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values. The Ottawa Catholic School Board’s balanced approach to preparing students for leadership, fulfillment and lifelong learning in a rapidly changing world is founded on four pillars.

The reflection of Catholic values and principles

Innovative approaches to teaching and learning
