The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board is pleased to welcome the world to our wonderful city, named the "safest community" in Canada. The Catholic School system is committed to building an environment where students will always feel safe and comfortable. Located in the Great Lakes region, Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada. We are central to a number of large metropolitan cities such as Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Niagara Falls, all close enough to explore.

The Ontario educational system is among the best in the world; a reflection of high academic standards, highly trained teachers, and state-of-the-art schools. We offer specialized programs such as International Baccalaureate, French Immersion, Specialist High Skills Major Programs, ESL support, Advanced Placement, Dual Credit and Licensed Hockey Canada Skills Academy, Soccer and Baseball-based curriculum; as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities and organized excursions.

Our ultimate goal is to nurture the mind, body, and soul of our students and we look forward to having you study with us!

Windsor has everything that a big city offers, but with the comfort and safety of a smaller community. Windsor is located along the border with the United States.

Our location, the southernmost city in Canada, is truly unique; we are centrally located and within a short drive of many large cities and beautiful natural destinations for students to explore. From the beauty of Northern Ontario to the excitement of Toronto and Niagara Falls. There is so much to see and do during your stay in Windsor. Windsor is a ten minute drive to Detroit (US Visa required), where people have access to professional sports, concerts, museums and great shopping!

All this combined with the fact that Windsor is one of the top ten smartest communities in the world and it is easy to see why Windsor is the place to be!
