At the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board we profess our faith in everything we say and do. We see the purpose of education as not only the transmission of knowledge, but also the formation of the whole person through bringing students to the personal integration of faith and life. The Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations guide the journey of learning for all students by articulating a vision of who the Catholic learner is becoming.

Seven overarching expectations assert what our graduates are expected to be:

  • A Discerning Believer Formed in the Catholic Faith Community
  • An Effective Communicator
  • A Reflective and Creative Thinker
  • Self-Directed, Responsible, Life Long Learner
  • A Collaborative Contributor
  • A Caring Family Member
  • A Responsible Citizen
