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.
SCHS News & Events
Commencement 2015. South Carleton's Commencement Ceremony will be held on Thursday, June 25 at 7:00 pm. Again this year, the ceremony will take place at Longfields Davidson Heights S.S., 149 Berrigan Drive in Barrhaven.
Invitations have been mailed to all potential grads. Students are asked to return the RSVP card to the Library by June 2. At that time, grads will be issued up to three complimentary tickets, provided that their gown order, slideshow writeup, and Community Service hours have all been completed. Students may add their names to the Wait List for up to two additional tickets at a cost of $10 each. We do not anticipate that there will be very many additional tickets available this year, as construction at Longfields has reduced the capacity of the gymnasium.
Grad Slideshow. All potential grads are asked to complete their writeup for the Grad slideshow which will be shown at Commencement. The server is online at http://10.190.29.46/grad. This can only be accessed from the school network.
Summer School. Students may take Reach Ahead or Make Up classes at summer school. Classes will be offered at Sir Wilfrid Laurier S.S., Adult H.S., Sir Robert Borden H.S., and John McCrae S.S. this summer. The summer school session runs July 2 - 24, 2015. Registration for Reach Ahead classes ends June 5, while registration for Make Up classes is open until June 26. Students register for summer school on Career Cruising.
School bus service will be offered to Sir Wifrid Laurier and Sir Robert Borden only. Check the Board website in June for details.
Co-op is also available, but registration ends May 30! More information on summer co-op...
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.
Free Literacy/Numeracy Programs. Students in grades 7-12 now have the opportunity to get help with Math and English on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Frederick Banting Secondary Alternate Program, 1453 Stittsville Main Street. More information...
