Welcome to South Carleton High School
Our school is located in the southwestern sector of the City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in the village of Richmond (see map).
For over a half century South Carleton High School has been recognized
for continued academic and athletic excellence. The school opened its doors
in 1952 to 263 students and 13 teachers. Today, we have a student population
of approximately 1000, with almost 70 teaching staff. In the intervening
years, thousands of students and staff have passed through the halls and
classrooms of South Carleton High School.
Though many things about South Carleton HS have been transformed by time, our commitment to excellence continues to endure steadfast into the twenty-first century.
South Carleton High School operates under the jurisdiction of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.
Our Mission Statement
South Carleton High School is a caring, community school. Our team of staff, students, parents and community promote a sharing, inclusive and welcoming environment. We respect the individual, honour our traditions, encourage daily excellence, and prepare students for their future.

Are you interested in joining South Carleton's Sources of Strength team? Sources of Strength is a resiliency-based health promotion program. The project is generally described as fun and interesting. Students use the connections and the strength they have to help promote a healthy school environment where individuals who are struggling learn that they are not alone. When youth leaders work together with caring adults, it can help many students feel better and supported! Apply now to be part of this great program.

Zipthru Reloadable Debit Card for School Cafeteria. A new and convenient way to purchase food is being implemented in our school cafeteria. The Zipthru debit card works much as a Tim’s card.
