About Us

St. Alexander School strives to be a family learning environment where all individual strengths, challenges, and cultural backgrounds are recognized and honored with dignity. The love of Christ is visible through the actions of staff, parishes, families, and students. A safe working climate which enhances self -esteem is established through fair boundaries and appropriate behavior.

Construction in 1958, St. Alexander Catholic School is located in a residential area in the west end of North Bay. It was named after Bishop Alexander Carter who served as Bishop of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie for 28 years. The school has a strong tradition of family commitment and involvement and a long partnership with the Pro-Cathedral of the Assumption Parish, both of which help create a school community of learning and faith.

Recognition of student achievements, participation and caring behavior occurs monthly in our Virtue Celebrations at which time one child from each classroom is recognized for displaying the characteristics of the Virtue. End of year awards acknowledge student achievement as well.

These include awards for

  • Humanitarianism
  • Citizenship
  • Academics
  • Athletics
