About Us

Presently, we are a four classroom rural school in the Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board. We have JK–grade 8 and an extended French program for JK–grade 8. We house the Mattawa Child Care Centre which includes a daily before and after school program. We are in an exciting phase of our school's history as we settle into our new St Victor school that opened three years ago. This beautiful building houses our daycare, a beautiful state-of-the-art gymnasium, brightly lit classrooms and several gorgeous outdoor play areas.

Our school consists of:

  • 67 students
  • 7 teachers (including a Classroom Resource Teacher and teacher of the hearing impaired), 2.0 Educational assistants, .8 secretary, 1 full time custodian and 1 part time custodian.
  • 4 classrooms plus a resource room and a french classroom

Technology at our school includes:

  • SMART Boards
  • Mobile laptop lab
  • iPods/iPads

Mission Statement

As a school community, we provide learning opportunities that inspire, nurture and celebrate each learner's journey to:

  • reach their full potential
  • be a contributing member of society
  • live the richness of their faith
  • embrace lifelong learning

Our Community

The community is made up of three related parts: our church, our homes and our school. Each one is necessary to the care, growth, and education of the children in our community.

Our Town

The community of Mattawa is nestled in a protective valley, at the junction of the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers. The Ottawa River is a shared border between ourselves and the province of Quebec. We are connected to the province of Quebec by the old Moccasin Railway Line, now the route of the scenic Timber Train running between our town of Mattawa and the Quebec town of Temiscaming.

Support Catholic Education(Posted:10/30/2017)

DID YOU KNOW?  Your school support defaults to English Public each time you move residences. You must re-declare yourself as English Separate.    

By ensuring that you are accurately recorded as a Separate School Supporter, you will be able to cast a vote for Catholic trustees in the October 22, 2018 Municipal Election and you are helping to deliver a powerful message to the Ontario government about the level of support for publicly funded Catholic education in our province.
