Faith and Excellence in Catholic Education

Principal’s Message

Thank you for considering Queen of Angels Catholic School as the school of choice for your child.

We encourage you to talk to as many people as you can about our school and feel free to ask any questions. This is a great school!

Queen of Angels Catholic School is a community; a partnership between school, home and parish, and as such we work hard to build an environment of caring and respect. We recognize that each child is unique and encourage them to do, and be, the best they can.

The school offers an extensive extra-curricular program designed to supplement the regular curriculum. Numerous sports teams, clubs, and projects are occurring throughout the entire school year giving students the opportunity to become involved in “their” school. Parent involvement is also welcomed and encouraged as parents are the primary educators of their children.

If not for the efforts of our parents and the commitment of our staff, Queen of Angels would not be the school it is today.

Please contact us if you have any questions, would like to set up an interview, or tour our facility.

– Mrs. Kathy Korman

About Queen of Angels

Queen of Angels School is situated on eleven acres in the heart of the Cowichan Valley.

The school currently enrolls students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 as well as operates Angel Care, a daycare program for children ages 3 and 4.

Developing The Whole Child

Queen of Angels is a welcoming community where the emphasis is placed on developing the whole child – Spiritually, Physically, Intellectually, Culturally, Emotionally, Socially, and Artistically. Students are guided by Catholic tradition, encouraged to produce their best possible work, and urged to participate in sports and other extra-curricular activities.

To Build In Love

Our students continue to learn what it means to serve the larger community as we continuously support the local Food Bank, Warmland House, Chalice Foster Children and other local, national and international charities. Our motto, “To Build in Love”, comes from Ephesians 4:13.

Hear From Our Teachers

“It has been a privilege to serve and be part of ICS for the past 22+ years. Born and raised in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, I am a teacher and former student of Queen of Angels School. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing staff and students. Queen of Angels is not just a school…It is a family. We support each other and provide a warm and loving environment where students and families feel safe and enjoy learning. We encourage our students to be the best they can be in a safe and inclusive environment. Students are supported in a Christian environment practicing our school G.O.A.L.S. (Gospel Values, Ownership, Attitude, Leadership). I feel truly grateful to be part of such a loving and wonderful community.”

Our History

Early Beginnings

Construction of Queen of Angels School was completed in September 1964, housing 207 students from Grades 1-7. The school was officially open on April 4, 1965 by The Most Reverend Remi De Roo, Bishop of Victoria.


In 1991 Queen of Angels School added a new administration area, a second (smaller) gymnasium, a library, computer lab, cooking lab, science lab, seven general-use classrooms, and grew to include students in Grades 8-9.

Queen of Angels Today

Currently there are approximately 230 students enrolled at Queen of Angels Catholic school in grades K through 9. There are 31 three to five year-olds participating in the Angel Care program.
