Discover your potential at the OCSB

We care and support the well-being of our students while fostering innovation and faith-based education. The Ottawa Catholic School Board is unique in its values, approach to learning and focus on student wellness, diversity, technology, sports and academic success.

Ottawa– In the heart and capital of Canada

A cosmopolitan city with small-town charm, Ottawa offers everything that a modern city requires while still retaining a safe and welcoming atmosphere. Ottawa is a safe, bilingual city filled with parks, museums, galleries, sports teams, shopping, restaurants, the Rideau Canal, nearby ski hills and hiking, world-class hospitals, and embassies. Best of all, Ottawa offers the opportunity to prepare for and attend post-secondary institutions in the area.

Our Deep Learning approach

At every Ottawa Catholic school, we focus on helping your child develop global competencies: citizenship, character, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. By developing the whole child, we are creating the leaders of tomorrow.

Pathway to post-secondary education

High school at the OCSB is all about preparing your child to thrive as their future self. We have a variety of programs and supports that allow your child to explore their talents and interests while preparing them for top North American Universities and Colleges.

Faith-based values

While a child’s academic success is important, most would agree that it’s even more important their child grows up to be a good person. At the OCSB, we provide an education that respects the universal values of all faiths, grounded in Catholic principles.
