Welcome! A Catholic education is a one-of-a-kind learning experience because it focuses on more than just academics. Our dedicated staff members are committed to nurturing the entire child spiritually, physically, intellectually, culturally, emotionally, and socially, in order for them to have a happy, healthy, and balanced life. Catholic Schools provide children with the invaluable opportunity to expand their knowledge, explore their passions, create community, strengthen their sense of self and build a relationship with God all in one place.
Our Mission Statement clearly outlines the purpose of the Catholic Independent Schools of Nelson Diocese:
“The Catholic Schools of Nelson Diocese, in partnership with the home and Church, strive to educate the whole child with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ as its foundation. By priests, administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and parish members all working together, the students of the CISND become life-long learners and fine contributing Christian members of society.”
We are essentially teaching our students not only the skills they need to be successful in the workplace, but also the skills and morals necessary to be a well-rounded Christian.
Please consider enrolling your child at one of our Catholic schools.

As Catholic schools, we are committed to a bully-free environment in which children can learn, free from fear of harassment or violence.
Our curriculum goes beyond academics to develop the full child - physically, intellectually and spiritually - to set our students up for a well-balanced life.
