Welcome to the CISKD Website!

Welcome to the Catholic Independent Schools of the Kamloops Diocese!

Thank you for your interest in considering a Catholic education for your family! Catholic schools offer a unique version of holistic education to develop the whole person in Christ. Through a rich, cross-curricular permeation of our Catholic faith within the context of a safe and nurturing environment, all are encouraged to reach their God-given potential. Our schools are a place to encounter the ‘Living Christ’ and to learn of His great and transforming love. We are all called to be witnesses of Christ in our daily lives by living out the Gospel values, thereby empowering our graduates to ‘go forth, and make a difference in the world”!

We offer 5 'brick and mortar' Catholic schools in the Kamloops Diocese, along with BC's only Catholic Distance Learning (online) School that serves students from across the province. Our schools operate under the authority of our Diocesan leadership, Bishop Joseph Nguyen:
