Our School

Bethlehem Catholic High School opened in August 2007 for students in Grades 9 and 10. It is located at the west end of 22nd Street in what will be the new Blairmore neighbourhood. Our address is: 110 Bowlt Crescent, Saskatoon, S7M 0L1

Bethlehem serves students living on the west side of Circle Drive. This school integrates faith and learning in a distinctive facility featuring a chapel, two gymnasiums and a theatre. We are welcoming and innovative in both design and operation.

Why Bethlehem?

Build Bethlehem Everywhere: A Statement on Catholic Education is the document which provided the inspiration for the naming of Bethlehem Catholic High School. This document calls all partners in Catholic Education to reflect on who we are called to be as Catholic educators in delivering programs to those we serve.

Bethlehem is the birthplace of our faith; the Cradle of Christianity. Bethlehem is the foundation on which our Church and all Christian religions are built. Bethlehem also symbolizes Christ’s presence among us and the journey of the faithful. It also represents Christ’s willingness to welcome all who wish to be part of Christ’s community. This is the inspiration for the naming of Bethlehem Catholic High School. It will continue to guide the planning, development and future operation of the school.

Planning our school

 

Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools held a series of consultation meetings in late 2004 to examine what type of programming and facility would be needed for students living west of Circle Drive. Consultations were held with parent councils and youth from Catholic schools in the area, division staff, aboriginal organizations and the broader Catholic community.


In this first stage, community members were asked for input on what they thought were important aspects to consider in planning and building Bethlehem Catholic High School. A great deal of information was also gathered on how “things should be done differently” at this new high school.

A full report of the what was heard during consultations is available here, along with an abridged version.
