It is currently located along the Rideau Canal in Old Ottawa East neighbourhood of Ottawa. Like other Catholic schools, it is publicly funded under the Ontario school system.


Immaculata High School

Immaculata High School was founded as an all-girls school in 1928 by the Grey Sisters as an alternative to public school education for girls of moderate income, and located at 211 Bronson Avenue. Major changes include expansions in 1950, 1963 and 1967, the addition of male students in 1978, the addition of grades 7 and 8 in 1983, and the move in September 1994 (after 2 years of major renovations) to the current location at 140 Main Street. It has been declared an arts academy.[citation needed]

The high school's current location was originally built in 1930 to house both St. Patrick's High School and St. Patrick's College (Ottawa), a now defunct Catholic post-secondary institution. In 1973, St. Patrick's sold the building to Algonquin College, who operated a satellite campus there until selling the building to Immaculata in 1994.

In 2007, Principal Thomas D'Amico was named one of Canada's Outstanding Principals.[1] The school's sports team is the Immaculata Saints, and the school mascot is the saint bernard 'Bernie Mac'.
