Catholic Graduate Expectations

St. James Catholic School prides itself in being a school that not only digs deeply into the Ontario Curriculum in all subject areas,  but also works hard to ensure that our students are well developed in the Catholic Graduate Expectations.  

Catholic education views human life as an integration of body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest. The expectations of Catholic graduates, therefore, are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but in terms of values, attitudes and actions.
