Nurturing Faith and Excellence in Halton

In the heart of Halton, a new beacon of hope and education has risen this fall, illuminating the path for students seeking a strong foundation in academics and Catholic values. Mater Boni Consilii Academy (MBCA), an independent Catholic school, has opened its doors after more than a decade of dedicated planning and collaboration between a passionate board, committed staff, and a devoted development team. MBCA is more than just a school; it's a testament to the power of faith and perseverance.

One of the most remarkable aspects of MBCA's journey is its partnership with Our Lady of Deliverance Syriac Catholic Church. This partnership allows MBCA to utilize the church's basement as its home base, providing a nurturing environment that is deeply rooted in faith. This partnership is a testament to the community's commitment to fostering education and faith together.

Since September 18, MBCA has been blessed with the opportunity to serve five students, thanks to its dedicated staff, which includes Miss Semchyshyn and Mrs. Cabazor. Their unwavering commitment to providing a quality education and a safe, faith-filled environment has already garnered positive feedback from parents. As one parent expressed, "My son actually enjoys going to school, the teachers are professional, while also being compassionate, and I feel like I am leaving my son with family who share our Catholic values and are working with me to help him work towards academic excellence while also providing a safe space for him to grow into a strong leader."

At MBCA, education extends beyond the classroom. The staff and educators are deeply committed to their own continuous education, spiritual formation, and service to the students, the school, and the parish community. They lead by example, fostering a prayerful and apostolic attitude that concretely lives out their call to educate, form, and serve.

While MBCA has been blessed with support, a location, and the opportunity to start small, it continues to seek support from community members to expand its enrollment and meet the financial demands of operating a school. The growth of MBCA is not just a school's success story; it's a community's collective achievement in building an exemplary community of Christian leaders dedicated to serving the Church.


How Can You Help?

Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of students and the success of this vital mission. Join us in our commitment to provide families, students, and staff with the opportunity to be part of an exceptional community of Christian leaders at the service of the Church.

Along with your prayers here are 3 key ways you can support MBCA:

  1. Become a Monthly Donor: Consider becoming a monthly donor to MBCA. Your monthly contributions provide stability and help MBCA prepare budgets and plan for the coming months more effectively. Even small monthly donations can make a big difference in sustaining the school's mission.

  2. Spread the Word: Help MBCA by spreading the word about this unique educational opportunity. If you know a family looking for a private school option for their children, let them know that admissions are still open. MBCA can assist in the transition process from publicly funded schools, making it a smooth and supportive experience for both children and parents.

  3. Participate in School Events: Get involved with MBCA by offering your time or financial support at upcoming events. The next school event, the All Saints Dance-A-Thon, is a great opportunity to contribute. You can help cover the cost of food, decorations, and raffle prizes, including themed baskets. Your support for school events helps create a vibrant and engaging community for students and their families.

Additionally, if you prefer to make a one-time donation, you can do so via Canada Helps or get in touch with MBCA to explore other donation methods. Remember, every gift, whether big or small, counts and contributes to the success of MBCA's mission of nurturing faith and excellence in its students. Your support is crucial in helping MBCA continue its vital work in the community.

Mater Boni Consilii Academy has a crucial mission in today's world, one that is deeply needed. The school is steadfastly committed to enhancing its ability to provide the best education and facilities for the integral formation of its faculty and students.

In closing, the MBCA community is immensely grateful for the support it has received thus far and excited about the future. We are all blessed and thankful to be part of this extraordinary mission and school community. Together, in prayer and with God's blessings, we will succeed in bringing about the exceptional opportunity of a holistic approach to Christian education, nurturing faith, and excellence in the hearts and minds of the young leaders of tomorrow.
