St. Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School

St. Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School is an alternative high school with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board geared towards senior level students.  Over the past 6 years, the school has evolved, many students have graduated and made a successful transition from school to postsecondary studies or school to employment. We work towards a successful outcome for each of our students by focusing on “Success for each, a place for all”. 

The off-site campuses (Cambridge, Kitchener) provide opportunities for students to meet all the graduation requirements. Primarily through an independent learning model, we offer a variety of compulsory and optional Independent Learning Courses, ‘credit recovery’ for previously failed courses, preparation for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) or the Literacy Course, and the chance to participate in physical education classes.  In addition, we offer cooperative education programs, career days and service learning opportunities within the community.   We provide ongoing personal, social / emotional support through connections with our youth care workers, school social workers, staff members and community organizations.

The St. Don Bosco community provides a safe, caring environment which fosters respect, responsibility, individuality, resilience, diversity and creativity. We teach students the skills required to be life-long learners, contributing members of the community and successful in school while providing a nurturing environment for students who benefit from having individual connections with our staff.

Our school provides academic and personal support rooted in our core Catholic values and role modelling through faith in action.  In an environment where learning, flexibility and respect are paramount, individuals are motivated to actively explore their strengths and passions in order to make connections to the greater community.
