Catholic Graduate Expectations (CGE)


The graduates of a Catholic School are described not only in terms of the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the world of work or post-secondary education, but also in terms of values, attitudes and actions which reflect the foundations of Catholic curriculum.  The expectations of a graduate of Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School are those delineated by the Institute for Catholic Education and The Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland, Clarington Catholic District School Board.

This School exists to provide a Catholic education whereby the graduate is expected to understand, appreciate and strive toward the following lifestyle.

  • A discerning believer formed in the Catholic Faith community, who celebrates the signs and sacred mystery of God's presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living.
  • An effective communicator who speaks, writes and listens honestly and sensitively, responding critically in gospel values.
  • A reflective, creative and holistic thinker who solves problems and makes responsible decisions with an informed moral conscience for the common good.
  • A self-directed, responsible, lifelong learner who develops and demonstrates his/her God-given potential.
  • A collaborative contributor who finds meaning, dignity and vocation in work which respects the rights of all and contributes to the common good.
  • A caring family member who attends to family, school, parish, and the wider community.
  • A responsible citizen who gives witness to Catholic social teaching by promoting peace, justice and the sacredness of human life.
