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 1100, 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.

Commencement 2014. A large audience of family, friends and SC staff watched as South Carleton's graduating class of 2014 received their diplomas Thursday evening at Longfields Davidson Heights S.S. Photographs of each grad were taken by Mr Ellis. These may be downloaded from http://tinyurl.com/lgm6y2e. Thanks go out to the many volunteers - staff, parents, and students - who helped to make the evening a success, and to LDHSS for welcoming us into their school. Congratulations to all of our graduates!
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. Parents can go on line and add money to the card, or a student can bring money to school and load it at the cash register. Read more.
