Archbishop Jordan's philosophy is to meet the needs of all students and assist them to develop physically, mentally, socially and spiritually in a Catholic community and living the Gospel value of "Everyone Belongs."
In our school, we follow an inclusive model, where all our students participate in the classroom and the broader school setting. We provide a caring supportive environment for students with behavioral, communication, intellectual, learning and physical challenges.
Our students are encouraged to foster an understanding of their strengths, so that they can develop a strong sense of self-worth. In addition, we provide opportunities for all students to participate in school activities so that they better understand their interrelationships with others and continue to build on their strengths. When children are valued, listened to, encouraged, understood and believed in; they will be successful.
We offer a team approach, consisting of parents, teachers, educational assistants, counsellors and administrative support.
