Principal's Message

Welcome to another year at Father Leo J Austin Catholic School.  Our staff, students and parents are very committed to provide our students with the very best educational opportunities available while maintaining our focus on our Faith.  Our ultimate goal is to prepare our students for their next level in life with our Catholic Graduate Expectations as a focus.  We believe strongly in our faith as it pertains to student, parent and teacher relationships.  Our school theme over the past year has been “Created to Care – A Call to Action” indicating our commitment to many social justice issues in our local and global communities.


Over the years our school has demonstrated excellence in our academic programming.  We have also scored exceptionally well in the provincial grade 9 mathematics testing and the grade 10 literacy testing (see the EQAO website for school results). This year we continue to expand our academic programming in the area of Advanced Placement and Specialist High Skills Major programs.  We hope these programs will continue to engage and challenge students at all levels.  In addition to these programs our school offers many exciting programs in the areas of theology of the body, class retreats, archeology, robotics and animation, theatre productions, percussion, band, justice system, physical education, math for girls initiative, pathways, apprenticeship in culinary arts, dual credits for college and secondary school in business, and therapeutic horseback riding for our special needs students. 


We also have great extra curricular activities such as class trips, our special Olympics, intramural activities, sports teams, grade 9 day, Terry Fox Run, We Day, school plays, band and choir, guitar club, photography club, writing and arts exhibits just to mention a few.


We are an exciting and dynamic Catholic school institution dedicated to Faith, Community and Excellence.  We are delighted that you are part of our journey.
