The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board is committed to high standards for student achievement in literacy. We enhance the literacy of students with instructional strategies that go beyond decoding, fluency and comprehension to include synthesizing and evaluating a broad variety of texts and media.

As students progress through the grades, we support their development with a balanced literacy approach, including lessons in critical literacy, media literacy, the use of technology and higher-order thinking skills that they will need as they move into adulthood.

We believe in a strong partnership between the home, school and parish to nurture the literacy of the students entrusted to our care. We believe that parents are a child’s first teachers and we embrace a collective vision to support families in the development of a child’s literacy skills.
