At the Durham Catholic District School Board, we share a sense of community with families, staff and parishes.
Guided by the teachings of Jesus and committed to Excellence, Equity and New Evangelization, we teach in schools throughout Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax, Pickering, Uxbridge, Scugog and Brock.
We serve approximately 21,150 elementary and secondary students:
Numbers are based on reports from September 2015.
Our logo is based on the tradition of Catholic, combining the cross, the heart and the anchor representing theological virtues of faith, hope and charity. The "S" represents Separate (Catholic) Schools; and the base is the Lamp of Learning - a symbol from the Greek word "Lampein" meaning "Torch" which represents a source of intellectual or spiritual light.
Our motto, simply stated, Catholic Education: Learning and Living in Faith. Through these words, we are reminded that faith plays a significant role in our learning system and that it is integrated into everything we do.
Our students are shaped by the vision that life is a combination of body, mind and spirit. Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic journey. The Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations highlight the values and attributes of our students will embody.
