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

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.
