About Yellowknife Catholic Schools
Yellowknife Catholic Schools has been providing quality education to northern students for over sixty years. We are the only faith-based district in the Northwest Territories. Although we are a Catholic school district we welcome families of all faiths. Our students are blessed to have the freedom to grow in all aspects, including spiritually. We truly are developing the whole child.
The district consists of three schools that house approximately 1,300 students: Weledeh Catholic School (K-8 and Preschool) with a classroom at the Territorial Treatment Center, École St. Patrick High (9-12 English and French Immersion) and École St. Joseph School (K-8 English and French Immersion and Bilingual Preschool).
Our mission, values and beliefs focus on the development and gifts of each child with their individual talents and cultural diversity. We know that collaboration, partnerships and inclusion are the keys to realizing our goals.
In 2012, Yellowknife Catholic Schools celebrated 60 years of existence. The following represents the story of the Yellowknife Catholic School system - a story of people, life, growth and faith. In the 60 years of existence, the Catholic School system has been anything but separate. It's been a lively, influential, nurturing, supportive part of the City of Yellowknife. Please enjoy our history as we celebrated our pride, happiness and our family through the pages of this book of memories.
