About Our School

St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic school’s motto is “we care, we share, we dare” and if our dear Saint were alive today, I believe she would be proud of the words that were chosen twenty-six years ago to guide our learning, social justice and faith. Caring, sharing and daring is exactly how St. Marguerite d’Youville lived her life.

The staff of St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic School, are grateful and proud to say that we have been witness to and participants of a community that strives daily to model the works of our Saint by caring, sharing and daring. We continue to honour Marguerite’s care of those less fortunate via our many local and global social justice initiatives, we share in her love of Indigenous Canadians with our First Nations, Inuit and Metis study and works of art and we dare, like Marguerite, to educate ourselves despite personal, financial or academic challenges.

Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin Peoples, on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.
