In the Greater Sudbury area, students have access to four French-language Catholic secondary schools. With many activities and services in the region offered in both English and in French, students have an opportunity to gain a superior level of bilingualism. Our quality high schools provide students with opportunities for them to acquire relevant knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the post-secondary destinations they may choose.
