Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School is located in the new residential development area of Boyne, in the southern part of the Town of Milton urban boundary. Approximately 16,900 residential units are expected for the Boyne community consisting of many low and medium-density developments.
Currently, all elementary students within the Boyne community are being accommodated at St. Scholastica CES for JK to Grade 8 (boundary map). However, St. Scholastica CES is projected to exceed site capacity by 2022 due to development pressures and the expanding French Immersion program.
On July 23, 2020, the Ministry of Education approved funding for Milton #10 CES. The Board is currently proceeding with municipal approvals and construction in order to have the facility ready for the 2022-2023 school year.
Note that the Milton #10 CES facility will be used as a holding school for Milton #3 CSS until the new Milton #3 CSS building is complete. This boundary change is being proactively sought in anticipation of the Milton #10 CES future transition from a holding school to a JK to Grade 8 school and to address accommodation pressure at St. Scholastica CES.
Scope of this Boundary Review
As a response to the above concerns, HCDSB is initiating an elementary School Boundary Review in the Town of Milton for St. Scholastica CES. The scope of the school boundary review is as follows:
- Review the school attendance boundaries for St. Scholastica CES to establish school boundaries for Milton #10 CES; and
- Complete the review with implementation to take effect for September 2022, before capacity is exceeded at St. Scholastica CES, and to ensure that elementary students from the Boyne new development area are directed to their home school, Milton #10 CES.
Virtual Public Information Meeting
On June 22, 2021, the School Boundary Committee met virtually and reviewed the current school boundary and the proposed school boundaries for St. Scholastica CES and Milton #10 CES. The Committee moved to present the proposed boundaries to the community for feedback through the Virtual Public Information Meeting.
