Vision, Mission and Strategic Priorities

The Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board is a leading provider of Catholic education, offering a comprehensive range of programs and services with a commitment to excellence in learning. Our Catholic school district educates approximately 14,500 students with a staff of over 2,000 employees.

School communities in our Catholic school district include suburban, small town and rural neighbourhoods. The Board is committed to the principles of equity and inclusivity enabling each student to learn and grow to his or her full potential. As a community of high-achieving learners, we embrace the strengths of students, staff and families from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and cultures.

The Board of Trustees approved the Strategic Plan 2017 to 2020 at the June 27, 2017 Board Meeting.  In January, the Board initiated a strategic planning and renewal process to give voice and value to what we are already doing while at the same time providing inspiration and a framework for moving forward.

We believe that each student can experience high levels of success. We also believe in the importance of each staff member being able to perform in a safe and supportive working environment that supports and instils the desire to do his or her best. Through the Communications Services Department, the Director’s Office ensures effective communication with all partners in Catholic education, including parents, students, teachers, staff, government, clergy and the community.

We welcome comments and questions from members of the community about Catholic education in our school district.
