Mission & Vision

Our Mission

The mission of Catholic Education in Hamilton-Wentworth, in union with our Bishop, is to enable all learners to realize the fullness of humanity of which Our Lord Jesus Christ is the model.

The Catholic Community of Hamilton-Wentworth believes the learner will realize this fullness of humanity

If the learning process

• begins at home and is part of family life
• is nurtured in the Parish
• is anchored in the Catholic Faith
• takes place within the context of worship, sacraments, and the life of the Church
• is enhanced by the school community
• is embraced by the learner as a personal responsibility for life.

If learning takes place in an appropriate and challenging environment

• in which members of the school community exemplify the teachings of Jesus Christ
• which reflects Gospel values and responsible use of human, financial and natural resources
• which promotes academic excellence and clear indicators of achievement
