Our Lady of the Lake Catholic College School in Georgina's Keswick community will host an Open House for families on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. All families in Georgina are invited.
The Catholic College School serves students in Grades 7-12 in a unique model that helps students to develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. Our Lady of the Lake students are taught, not only to be great students, but also responsible citizens who make positive contributions to their community.
Our Lady of the Lake CCS has become a cornerstone of the Keswick community since it opened in 2002, and over the years, many enhancements have been made to the delivery of its academic curriculum and extra-curricular programs. Today, the school serves over 500 students who regularly perform among the best in Georgina on Ministry of Education mandated EQAO and OSSLT testing.
"We are very proud of the unique programming offered to Grade 7-12 students at Our Lady of the Lake CCS. The Grade 7 and 8 programs are designed to foster student engagement and academic achievement so that younger students feel included and respected by their older peers," says Ron Crocco, Superintendent of Education. "As students continue at Our Lady of the Lake throughout their high school years, they further develop their leadership and academic skills in the areas of critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, Catholic character and citizenship."
"At Our Lady of the Lake, we educate and inspire all students to reach their full potential in a safe and caring environment," says Fran Fraser, Principal. "Our students are proud and excited to showcase their achievements, talents, and our school at the Open House on February 9th. I look forward to seeing many families in attendance."
The Open House will include information on Our Lady of the Lake Catholic College School's course offerings; specialized programs including Dual Credit, Specialist High Skills Major, and Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program; athletic teams, student clubs and councils.
Application packages will be available to interested families. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the school's auto shop, technology room, weight room, gymnasium, music room and servery. Several of the school's community partners will have displays set up during the Open House. Light refreshments will be served. For more information please call 905-656-9146.
