Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (OCSGE)

The Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) uses the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (OCSGE)​ as a framework to guide our programming and work in Catholic education. 

The expectations provide educators and students with a distinctive perspective to follow, in line with Catholic values, that encourages self-reflection both within and beyond the classroom.
