Catholic schools in BC go back a long way. They were given their start in the middle of the 1800’s by the Sisters of St. Ann with the opening of St. Ann’s Academy in both Victoria and Kamloops.
Since the early eighties, Catholic schools have served children of all abilities as far as is possible. Our schools have developed support services to meet the needs of their pupils.
Each school is an integral part of a larger community. Within each of the five dioceses in British Columbia, Catholic schools play a vital role in serving the communities in which they are located.
Catholic schools provide a holistic education, combiniung academic excellence with concern for the spiritual, moral, social, emotional, cultural and physical growth of students.
Catholic schools save BC taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually. They’re only funded at half the rate that the government funds a similar public school.
