On behalf of the Board of Directors and all of our communities, welcome to the Catholic Independent Schools of the Kamloops Diocese!
There is an African proverb which states, “It takes a whole village to raise a child”. In our context, we say together, “It takes the whole Church to raise a child”. Who is the Church? It’s people! As such, Catholic education offers a special partnership between home, school, and the Church. We believe that parents are the ‘first educators’ of their children, and that our schools are an extension of the Church. We are very happy to share the Good News of Catholic education with all who may be interested!
Together we commit ourselves to providing the very best education for our children and youth. Pope Francis has said, “Only by changing education can we change the world.” To this end, I would like to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in discerning a Catholic education for your family or for considering it as a career choice. In our communities, home, school and parish work closely together to provide a nurturing environment where Catholic teaching and Christian values permeate its programming so students may learn of its timeless truth and beauty. Our schools offer strong academic and extra-curricular programming for its students to succeed. From this commitment, our parents, staff, Councils, Pastors, Superintendent and Board of Directors work diligently to provide our children with a Catholic education that will serve them well in an ever-changing world!
With prayerful gratitude,
+Bishop Joseph Nguyen
