Michael PowerSt. Joseph is a dynamic co-ed community of 2000 students. Our present school began as two distinct high schools. The Sisters of St. Joseph opened St. Joseph Islington in 1949 with a population of 150 girls. The school was named after the patron of Canada. Eight years later in 1957, the Basilian Fathers started Bishop Michael Power, an all boys high school named after the first Catholic bishop of Toronto. Cooperation, shared resources, co-ed classes and portable facilities characterized the coexistence of these two separate school communities throughout the 60's and 70's. In 1982 the two schools were officially amalgamated .

Our teachers have established a strong tradition of rigorous academic standards. Currently, almost 80% of MPSJ graduates gain admission to university and college. Achievements in athletics and co-curricular activities are part of a well-earned reputation for excellence. Involvement is characterisitic of this school and an essential quality of both our history and our tradition.
