St. Bonaventure’s College is governed by a volunteer Board of Governors that highly values Catholic education in the Jesuit tradition. The college receives no government funding for its operations, relying only on the generosity of its benefactors and the tuition of its students.

Neither the public school board, nor any of its affiliated organizations, play any role in the operation of St. Bonaventure’s College. The school complies with the provincial Schools Act, and in particular, the section pertaining to “Private Schools.”
