Niagara Catholic elementary schools will host in-person open houses in February 2024. We will publish dates and times on our website in early 2024 and encourage you to follow us on social media for more information.

We hope to answer your registration questions. To learn more, we encourage you to schedule a visit at the Niagara Catholic elementary school in your neighbourhood.

Our Elementary Schools

Niagara Catholic has 50 Catholic elementary schools for students in Kindergarten through Grade eight, including the Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Centre, which offers elementary students in the Indigenous community and alternative learning site. Niagara Catholic elementary schools offer before and after-school care to children between the ages of four and 12. A list of these schools, the associated child care and the daily and weekly fees is available here. If you require childcare, you must access the Niagara Region’s Online Childcare Registry for licensed child care providers in Niagara.

School Locator

If you are uncertain which school is your child’s home school, please use the Transportation Eligibility section of the Niagara Student Transportation Services website. Simply enter your home address and your child’s grade to find your neighbourhood Catholic elementary school, and to determine whether your child is eligible for transportation.

Dress Code

Students in Niagara Catholic elementary schools are required to comply with the Board’s standardized dress code while at school. Students wear navy blue on the bottom, and navy or white on the top. Items may be purchased at the store of your choice. An example of our Elementary Standarized Dress Code is available here.

Faith Development

A Catholic education focuses on the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Niagara Catholic is currently in the second year of our three-year Theological Theme, Mass, Mercy, Mission, which is intended to guide students and staff on their faith journeys. Students in Grade 2 receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion. Grade 7 students participate in an annual Faith Festival each May, and Grade 8 students participate in the two-day, one-night Journey Retreat as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Child Care

Niagara Region Children’s Services and the Niagara Catholic District School Board will be conducting a viability study for before and after school care for school age children.

You will receive notification from the board, in the spring, to advise you of the process and timeframe to make application for care. The notification will include the process of application and timelines.
