The Halton Catholic District School Board is a model learning community, widely recognized as distinctively Catholic, providing exceptional education, while nurturing the call to love and to serve as a people of faith, living out God's plan.
This new Vision Statement, which was adopted in September 2009, serves as the foundation in providing direction and purpose for the development and implementation of our Board’s Strategic Planning and Renewal process. This process has initiated the engagement and active participation of all of the Board's community partners, as our Catholic school community renews its collective commitment to the Board's Mission and Vision of Catholic education.
