Dufferin-Peel Catholic Secondary Schools to Hold Public Information Sessions for Grade 8 students and parents
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will hold a series of public information sessions for Grade 8 students and their parents/guardians interested in enrolling in a DPCDSB secondary school for the 2020-21 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, DPCDSB 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 47 Specialist High Skills Major programs, three regional Arts programs, one regional Sports program, three International Baccalaureate programmes, two regional Advanced Placement programs, Extended French, French Immersion and Career Path programs, and the only publicly funded All-Girls secondary school in the region, DPCDSB schools offer students a variety of learning options to suit their individual education goals.
DPCDSB secondary school public information sessions will take place throughout October and November. A schedule of the Secondary School Information Sessions is available on the DPCDSB website. For more information about the information sessions, parents/guardians should contact their local school directly.
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is one of the largest and most diverse school boards in Ontario. It serves over 80,000 students in 151 schools located throughout Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville. With over 11,000 employees, DPCDSB is also one of the largest employers in the region.
