Principal’s Message

On behalf of the staff and students, I wish to extend a warm welcome to St. Aloysius School. Our school has served the Catholic community of the Avon Ward in beautiful Stratford, Ontario since 1955.

St. Aloysius Catholic School is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 community of lifelong learners with Catholic Education as our foundation. Our school and staff are committed to developing the full potential of every child. The staff at St. Aloysius looks forward to providing a positive, safe and caring environment, where all are welcome and respected.

Through each year we get to know each other better; we grow in knowledge as we face great challenges and celebrate our successes.  We are always mindful of the time we have to reflect upon and appreciate the many experiences each year provides.​

Shona Gracey, Principal
