Invitation from Churchill Alternative Public School

22 01 2023

Part of the OCDSB Alternative program, Churchill Alternative Public School Council sent the following invitation to the community:

Check out Churchill Alternative Public School:
A great option for K-6 students in our neighbourhood!

The school council of Churchill Alternative PS invites families to check us out — students west of the O-Train line, east of Sherbourne, and north of Carling are eligible to attend this unique and really amazing OCDSB program! All types of students thrive in our learning environment. While some families choose the school from the very start of kindergarten because of the Alternative approach, other students move to Churchill throughout the primary and junior grades to find the right fit.

At the core of the Alternative program are the seven tenets which are intentionally infused throughout all the classrooms and the school as a whole. You can learn about the tenets and what they look like in practice here: There’s so much that makes Churchill unique from the regular tree family activities where students from various grades work together on projects right down to the fact that the school staff are known to students and parents by their first names. 🙂

Our school council is reaching out because we keep on hearing from new families that they didn’t know about the program and the only way they found out was by word-of-mouth. So we’re spreading the word! If you want to learn more, here’s how:

  • Attend the Kindergarten Information Night on January 31st @ 6:30pm at Churchill (345 Ravenhill)
  • Email Alison Boyd (our principal – – she is available to answer any questions about the school and program
  • Request a tour of the school through our school council We can also connect you with other parents who can talk about their experience.

Note: If you are considering Churchill for the 2023-2024 school year, Alison has pointed out that it’s extremely helpful to register before the end of March because the OCDSB starts staff planning in the spring based on pre-registration numbers.

Thanks and we hope to hear from you!
The Churchill Alternative School Council
