As part of Ontario’s ongoing efforts to build and improve local schools, the province has given York Catholic District School Board approval to tender a new school building in Stouffville for students from kindergarten to grade 12.
The new building will include Blessed Chiara Badano Catholic Elementary School and St. Katharine Drexel Catholic High School.
The $37.1 million investment will provide a new, quality learning environment for the students of Stouffville, as well as new child care rooms. This project is part of the province’s capital investment program to support students with better learning spaces.
“I am excited to announce our government is continuing to make much needed investments in education in our community,” MPP Paul Calandra said. “This new school is a very welcome addition to our town and will enhance quality education for our children.”
Ontario’s investment in new and updated schools will create the foundation for a modern learning environment for thousands of students across the province.
“After a decade of advocacy, our government is getting the job done for families in Stouffville,” Education Minister Stephen Lecce said. “By delivering this major investment in a new school in Stouffville we are ensuring students learn in state-of-the-art facilities that are safe, modern, and technologically connected.”
Highlights of the new school construction include: 1,333 elementary/secondary student spaces, 49 new licensed child care spaces, and three new child care rooms.
The new school building will be located at 55 Meridian Drive in Stouffville.
