The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board will hold a series of public information sessions for Grade 8 students and their parents/guardians interested in enrolling in a Dufferin-Peel Catholic secondary school for the 2018-19 school year. The information sessions will provide parents and guardians with an overview of the programs and services offered at Dufferin-Peel Catholic secondary schools and will provide Grade 8 students with an opportunity to tour the school and talk to current students about the transition into high school.
Currently, Dufferin-Peel operates 26 Catholic secondary schools in Mississauga, Brampton, Bolton and Caledon. These schools continue to be recognized among the top performing schools in the province each year. With over 46 Specialist High Skills Major programs, three regional Arts programs, one regional Sports program, two International Baccalaureate programmes and one Pre-IB programme, two regional Advanced Placement programs, Extended French and Career Path programs, and the only publicly funded All-Girls secondary school in the region, Dufferin-Peel Catholic schools offer students a variety of learning options to suit their individual education goals.
Dufferin-Peel's secondary school public information sessions will take place throughout October and November. A schedule of the Secondary School Information Sessions is available on the board website. For more information about the information sessions, parents/guardians should contact their local school directly.
