The mandate of the Niagara Catholic District School Board is to provide a Catholic education which fosters and directs the spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, physical and social enrichment of all students thus enabling them to live and contribute as responsible Catholic citizens of our society. All secondary students are expected to achieve the various religious curriculum expectations of our system. All secondary students within Niagara Catholic must study Religion each year of their secondary education and successfully complete the course. Students are expected to participate in compulsory retreats, complete Christian Community Service hours and participate in all Board and school religious celebrations, events and activities as established by the board and the school. Students who do not meet these expectations may not be invited to participate in the secondary school graduation celebrations.
