About Our School
St. Paul Catholic School serves the Catholic families of Oak Park, Oakridge Acres, Huntington, Hunt Club, Red Tail Trail and Canterbury Estates. Our graduates attend Saint Thomas Aquinas School and St. Andre Bessette Secondary School. We have approximately 164 families and a student population of 242 from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.
St. Paul Catholic School is served by the pastoral team at Holy Family Parish, led by Fr. Bob Remark. Our school strives to create an atmosphere of love and trust that is Christ centred. We choose to be a community that “Celebrates the Good News” of Jesus Christ and His teaching. The Gospel values are fundamental to the very core of our enriched learning environment. The Ontario Curriculum cultivates a wholesome attitude to family life and learning. It is derived from the rich traditions of the Catholic faith. The celebration of our faith is part of our daily activities at St. Paul Catholic School.
St. Paul Catholic School has a long tradition of being a unique, community based school that encourages parent participation. During the school year we have over seventy active parents who regularly volunteer their time to work alongside teachers and staff. They assist in meeting the needs of our students and enriching the educational environment of our school community. Our parents are represented by two organizations that serve the school community. The Catholic School Council and The Healthy School Committee. Together there is a strong partnership between school and home.
