The Centre of Excellence for Black Student Achievement Opens its Doors
In June 2022, the Toronto District School Board’s Centre of Excellence for Black Student Achievement proudly launched its physical space at Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute in Scarborough.
The Centre of Excellence for Black Student Achievement unveiled the renovated wing within the school designated specifically to operationalize the nine mandates that support the work of the Centre of Excellence. This includes several newly designed rooms, such as a community room and lounge, two classrooms, a main office, and two professional learning rooms.
The Centre is the first of its kind in K-12 public education in Canada. It is one of TDSB’s responses to dismantle anti-Black racism within the school board and improve both experiences and outcomes for Black students.
