Welcome from the Principal

It is my pleasure as the Principal of St. John Brebeuf to welcome you to our website.
St. John Brebeuf is located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, which is approximately 45 minutes east of Vancouver. The school was founded in 1992 and currently has approximately 400 students from grades 8-12. The school has 3 feeder elementary schools and 7 supporting parishes.

Besides offering an array of courses, the school’s mission is to educate the entire individual. By embedding our faith within our core curriculum, St. John Brebeuf students are challenged to become strong examples of our Catholic faith community.

As you navigate through the website, you will begin to get a better understanding of the school and the programs we offer. Our teachers and staff are committed to your child’s education. We encourage all students to become involved outside of the classroom within the many athletic, music, campus ministry, drama, and other extra-curricular activities we offer. This website should allow you a glimpse of what it means to be a “Bear”.

I encourage new and prospective families to make an appointment , and I will be honoured to show you around this fabulous school.  Come and see how St. John Brebeuf “Brings Faith to Life”.

Mr. Gianni Bittante
