Welcome to St. Matthew the Evangelist Catholic School, we focus on the guiding principles that you seek in quality Catholic education: Excellence, Equity and Engagement. We offer 21st century learning, academic results, faith formation and a safe, caring community that accepts and respects your child.  We continue to build our school community by introducing and developing further aspects of our school in collaboration with the Catholic School Council. 

At St. Matthew the Evangelist Catholic School, we offer education from Kindergarten to Grade 8. Find your local Catholic school and learn more about our admission requirement. Complete our online application to register your child for school.

Parents/guardians, students, staff and the clergy are regarded as partners in the process of Catholic Education.  I invite you to review our student agenda and become familiar with the information found in the agenda. A mutual understanding of our school routines and a clear definition of our expectations will form the basis of a positive relationship between the home and school.

To all of our new families we welcome you to St. Matthew the Evangelist Catholic School!  We look forward to working with you and your children as you become part of our exciting school community.

Best wishes for a successful year.


Mrs. L. Goodwin,

Our faith

Students embrace the Catholic Church's renewed efforts to meet the spiritual needs of today's society, as witnesses to the Gospel values in their everyday lives.

Yes, Catholic schools are different. Each student in our Catholic learning community embodies excellence and equity by embracing the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations - to be:

  • A discerning believer;
  • An effective communicator;
  • A reflective, creative and holistic thinker;
  • A self-directed, responsible lifelong learner;
  • A collaborative contributor;
  • A caring family member; and
  • A responsible citizen.

People choose Catholic schools as an extension of their families. They want the values taught at home to be witnessed and lived at school. This is precisely what we offer in a Catholic school community.

Family of schools

St. Matthew the Evangelist Catholic School belongs to the Father Leo J. Austin Catholic Secondary School family of schools. From time to time, our students will visit Father Leo J. Austin for plays, presentations or to tour the school if they are transitioning to secondary school.

Our intermediate students also have opportunities to work in collaboration with secondary students on assignments such as media studies or robotics.
