Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board'

 The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is Ontario’s second largest publicly funded Catholic school system and is located on the shores of Lake Ontario on the western border of Toronto, Canada’s largest city. With 123 elementary and 26 secondary schools, throughout Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville, we serve over 85,000 students in the urban, sub-urban, and rural communities within our area. With Toronto - Pearson International Airport also located within our boundaries, students and parents have quick access to direct flights to over 180 destinations in 60 countries. As well, our central location is within an easy commute to 16 major universities and colleges. Dufferin-Peel Catholic schools have ranked amongst the highest in Canada, with outstanding scores on provincial and international assessments. We offer exceptional globally recognized programs including International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP). We believe that our international students should have the opportunity to become fully participating members in our welcoming and inclusive communities to allow for a fully immersed Canadian learning experience. Upon acceptance, international students may attend the school closest to their home. Each of our 149 schools has ESL and newcomer supports to help each student transition to life in Canada, no matter what level of English competency they have when they arrive. With students from over 150 countries, we are prepared to meet the needs of all English learners.
