Teacher Core (Grades 7 & 8)

Teacher – Core (Grades 7 and 8)

About Us

St. Michael's College School was founded in 1852 by the Basilian Fathers, and stands as Ontario's only independent Catholic high school for young men. The school offers students in Grades 7-12 an enriched, Catholic, Liberal Arts education complemented by a number of diverse co-curricular programmes. As a community within the Catholic Church, St. Michael's strives for excellence through a synthesis of culture and faith.

The motto of the Basilian Fathers and St. Michael's College School is "Teach me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge" (Psalm 118). This recognizes that being a good and disciplined individual, in charge of your own actions, is as important as the knowledge acquired through formal education. The motto is reflected in its mission to educate the whole person.

While St. Michael's strives to prepare its students for university, it is also fully committed to preparing them to be future Catholic leaders in the world.

Whatever the role at St. Michael's, it is more than a job – it is joining a community of likeminded colleagues who embrace the school's values, and deliver those values in everything that they do.
