History

In 1941, Brantford Catholic High School opened in the basement of St. Ann's Elementary School with just one Grade 9 class. A new class was added each year until 1951 when the school moved to a former residence on Duffrin Ave. From 1951 to 1978, the priests of the Congregation of the Resurrection acted as the principals. In 1959, the schools name changed to St. John's College. In the 1970-71 school year, St. John's College absorbed with Providence College at the present day Paris Road location. In the 1980's, the student population had grown so much that several expansions were added to the building. A new cafeteria, triple gym, teacher lounge, and 13 classrooms were constructed with help from community fundraising. In 1989, more additions were made with the addition of the current main entrance, 9 classrooms, administrative offices, the 'cafetorium', health center and guidance center. In 1991, enrolment exceeded 1700 students. This necessitated the opening of Assumption College in September, 1992, as well as Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Simcoe, Ontario in 2001.
