New Catholic Elementary School coming to the Riverside South Community

We are opening a new Catholic elementary school in Riverside South! The new school, located at 836 Solarium Avenue, will serve Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 students. It will offer French Immersion programming. Extended Day Programs for before and after-school care have been proposed in addition to a potential Pre-School Childcare Centre. We plan to open the school for the 2024-2025 school year.

Proposed boundary changes for the Riverside South Community

On Tuesday, February 14, 2023, the OCSB Board of Trustees approved the public consultation process for the Proposed Riverside South Catholic Elementary school attendance boundary. The proposed attendance boundary for the new school affects the existing boundaries for St. Jerome and St. Leonard elementary schools. Consequently, the existing boundaries of St. Francis Xavier and St. Mark High Schools will also be affected.

Grade 6 students attending the new elementary school will be directed to St. Francis Xavier High School. Full details of the proposed changes can be found in our New Riverside South Elementary School Proposed Attendance Boundary Consultation Document.
