Currently, there are only two Catholic secondary schools in the Town of Milton: Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School, and Bishop P.F. Reding Catholic Secondary School. But as a result of increasing enrollment, causing both schools to surpass their respective building capacities, there may be a need for a third school.
In fact, according to a recent report from the Town of Milton, the Halton Catholic District School Board finds the need to construct a third secondary school in Milton essential.
As a result, application has been submitted in the hopes to construct a new school.
The proposed school would be located along the south side of Louis St. Laurent Avenue, west of Thompson Road South at the future Kennedy Circle extension (legally described as Part Lot 8, Concession 4 NS (Trafalgar), Milton).

However, since the lands are currently vacant, no exact address is available.
A public meeting for this proposed development was held on Monday, March 25, 2019, however, no decision regarding the application has been made yet.
The next steps, according to Tayjua Squire, Communications and Marketing Advisor, Milton, will include a detailed technical review by town staff, and commenting agencies of the submissions provided by the applicant for the rezoning and local official plan amendment application.
It was noted in the report that the following issues will need to be reviewed: site design and urban design, traffic impacts, pedestrian and vehicle access/circulation, along with servicing and stormwater management.
There is currently no word on how many students the proposed school would hold.
We will provide updates on this story as they become available.
