New Boundary Proposal for St. Joseph and St. Mother Teresa High Schools (2024)
An in-person consultation meeting will take place at St. Mother Teresa High School on Thursday, June 8, at 7:00 pm.
The rapid development of new homes in Barrhaven South is will increase future enrolment at St. Joseph High School, which the school will not be able to accommodate. Consequently, Board staff are proposing changes to the attendance boundaries of St. Joseph and St. Mother Teresa High Schools which would take effect beginning September 2024.
Although not required, we ask that you register for the public meeting beforehand so that we can effectively plan for numbers and obtain contact information for follow-up communication. Register before noon on Thursday, June 8, using this form: St. Joseph and St. Mother Teresa HS Boundary Revision Consultation Public Meeting.
Read the notice about the proposed changes and provide your feedback by Thursday, October 19, 2023. A public meeting will also be held prior to the feedback deadline.

In September 2023, students in grades JK-5 who reside within the new school's approved boundary and the new school's staff will be temporarily accommodated until the planned opening of the school in January 2024.
September 2023- January 2024
Kindergarten and Grade 4-5 : Accommodation Site- St. Benedict School
Grade 1-3 : Accommodation Site - St. Cecilia
All Kindergarten to Grade 5 staff and students will all relocate to the new school upon opening. Classes and teachers will remain the same.
Grade 6 students will remain at their current school for the 2023-2024 school year. New Barrhaven South ES grade 6 students who are new registrations would be directed to attend either St. Benedict ES or St. Cecilia ES for the 2023-2024 school year, based on place of residence and 2022-2023 attendance boundaries.
