School Attendance Boundary Review

Many areas of BHNCDSB have experienced significant growth which is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Much of this growth has exceeded the Board’s anticipated growth rate. Many of the impacted schools currently operating at or above 100% capacity and have numerous portables on site. Continued local development, within the impacted school areas, are expected to yield a considerable number of new families joining the Board putting further pressure on the capacity of our schools. This has prompted the initiation of a School Attendance Boundary Review.

A School Attendance Boundary Review is led by an Attendance Boundary Review Committee (ABRC). The ABRC will work collaboratively and provide feedback and recommendations that will inform the final decision made by the Board of Trustees on boundary changes within the reviewed area.

On December 20, 2022, the Board of Trustees of the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board approved the commencement of the following School Boundary Reviews:

Southwest Brantford (Elementary) beginning in January 2023 and involving:

  • St. Basil Catholic Elementary School
  • St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School
  • St. Theresa Catholic Elementary School

City of Brantford (Elementary) beginning in Spring 2023, involving all elementary schools in the City of Brantford expect those involved in the Southwest Brantford review.

  • Blessed Sacrament Catholic Elementary School (Burford)
  • Holy Family Catholic Elementary School (Paris)

  • St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School (Hagersville)
  • St. Michael’s Catholic Elementary School (Dunnville)
  • St. Patrick’s Catholic Elementary School (Caledonia)
  • St. Stephen’s Catholic Elementary School (Cayuga)

Board-wide Secondary school review in 2023/24 for all Catholic Secondary schools in the Board, including the new North Brantford Catholic Secondary School, schedule to open in September 2026.
