At the Special Board Meeting on February 28th, recommendations were approved by the Board of Trustees for the Alliston Boundary Review. Please see the approved decision page for more information.


In March 2018, the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board received funding approval to construct a new 470 pupil elementary school, including a three-room child care centre,  in the Treetops subdivision in New Tecumseth. Construction of the new facility commenced in the spring of 2021 and is anticipated to be complete this fall for an opening in September 2022. During this time, the New Tecumseth area has continued to grow in enrolment

A boundary review is necessary to establish a new boundary for the Alliston Catholic Elementary School (name to be determined) and balance enrolment and capacities in the area.

Affected Schools:

  • Father F.X. O'Reilly Catholic School
  • Monsignor J.E. Ronan Catholic School
  • St. Paul's Catholic School


  • Establish a boundary for the new Alliston Catholic Elementary School
  • Review the boundaries of other existing schools in the area to ensure enrolment relief, where feasible.
  •  Determine attendance boundaries that best meet boundary review objectives.


  • Establish new boundaries as a result of a new school or capacity concerns in existing area.
  • Balance school enrolment and capacity.
  • Minimize busing and maximize walk zones.
  • Consideration of site restrictions.
  • Consideration of projected development and enrolment.
