School History

​St. Basil Elementary School


St. Basil Catholic School is located in the Dixie/Rathburn area of Mississauga. The school celebrated its 36 years of Catholic education in the Spring of 2018. The school includes a main building and an attached porta-pac. Our school serves 271 students, of diverse social and ethnic backgrounds, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 and has a staff of 30 including teachers, Educational Resource Workers, secretarial, custodial personnel, a lunch supervisor and an administrator.


St. Basil Catholic School is committed to Catholic education as outlined in the mission statement of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.  Our students come to us with a variety of strengths and needs, with our Catholic faith as our common bond.  Our prayer life, liturgical celebrations, the sacraments, and our faith and values systems form the foundation of our school program. We provide a learning environment where models of Gospel values and Catholic doctrines, teachings and beliefs are an integral part of the daily life of our school. 


The school motto, "Living, Loving, Learning", and our mission statement, reflect our commitment to nurture the whole child to strive for personal growth and lifelong learning. Staff, the pastoral team, and our parent community work collaboratively to help students understand and accept the challenges and joys of walking in the footsteps of Jesus. Together, we welcome all within our community and reach out to others outside of our community, accepting each person as a child of God.


Literacy and numeracy, along with Catholicity, continue to be the focus for our school.  Emphasis is placed on providing a balanced program that involves our students in a variety of reading, writing, listening and oral communication experiences across the curriculum.  Computers are an integral part of the curriculum and support students in the area of mathematics, research and word processing skills.  Staff is continuously involved in professional development opportunities which enhance their knowledge as they strive to use exemplary teaching practices to facilitate meeting Ontario curriculum expectations with their students. Our faith values are infused in our day to day activities at school. Whether in the playground or in the classrooms, we are always conscious of the fact that we are a Catholic school first and foremost, so that in our dealings with one another, we strive to reflect Jesus' face to those we encounter.


Special education resource teachers support our students that are particularly challenged by the curriculum.  ELL support is also available for students who are new to the English language.  The parents of our community, in general and via the Catholic School Council, are active and involved in all areas of the school including classroom volunteers, program and policy input, and fund raising to support various school initiatives.

St. Basil School is the site for many evening community activities as well as the before and after school program, called PLASP, which operates daily at the school.

At St. Basil, we are confident that our balanced program of religion, academics, arts and technology offers our students a well-rounded and value-centred education which will prepare them to make good choices for the future.
