St. Jean de Brebeuf Catholic High School
St. Jean de Brebeuf is located in the Vellore neighbourhood of Woodbridge in Vaughan, Ontario. The campus is part of a joint complex with the Vellore Village Community Centre on Weston Road. The community centre provides the gymnasium space, tennis courts, soccer fields and baseball diamond. Initially, the school had a closed-campus policy when it opened in 2005, which lasted until September 2011, when rather than focusing on the close-campus policy, the school administration was pressured by the York Catholic District School Board to more strictly enforce the uniform policies and rules. As a result, the close-campus policy was revoked. During the years of the closed-campus policy, many students despised the confinement, partly because the school cafeteria food was awful and expensive. As a result, students would attempt to escape to area retail plazas to each lunch at local eateries such as Emily’s Bakery. The school mascot is Buddy the Black Bear, and school colours are black and yellow. The motto is Eruditio mentis animae nutriment meaning Educating the mind, nurturing the soul. Feeder schools include St. Mary of the Angels, St. Michael the Archangel, St. Clare, St. John Bosco, St. Veronica, St. Agnes of Assisi and St. Emily Catholic Schools.
