This post explores the resources for Religious and Family Life Education available on the York CDSB website.
The York Catholic District School Board serves one of the fastest growing areas in North America: the Regional Municipality of York, located in the Greater Toronto Area.
We have schools in each of the Region’s nine area municipalities: Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Whitchurch-Stouffville, and the Township of King.
Our more than 5,000 dedicated instructional staff members serve over 54,000 students.
Currently, we have 87 elementary schools and 16 secondary schools, with new schools opening yearly.
