A.P.P.L.E. Program at St. Martin's School


A.P.P.L.E. Program at St. Martin's School

Members have been asking about the program being run by the Catholic School Board at the St. Martin’s School site on Salisbury Ave. Many have expressed concern over the increased numbers of students and their behaviour in the neigbourhood.

A.P.P.L.E. stands for: Alternative Pupil Placement for Limited Expelled Students and is a Toronto Catholic District School Board program run through Monsignor Fraser College for students who are on a limited expulsion. This program provides a flexible and individualized alternative setting for youth 16 years of age and older who are at risk and are experiencing halted success with the regular secondary school system.

The president, Joseph Curatola, has told us that they are closely monitoring the situation. Anyone in the neighbourhood with questions or concerns is free to contact either him or his collegue, Dave Morin. You may contact them directly at:

Good question. I’m not sure of the status, but let me inquire and get back to you. Please note that the post above is from 2008.

Not sure..butin 1970-1978 whlist attended there it was filled with abusive teachers sexual, mental and physical..they should have closed that hell hole years ago.

I attended St Martin from 1984 to 1988 and had the best eexperience ever. The teachers were compassionate, caring, and above all cared about our education. The best 4 years of my life.

I have confirmed with the TCDSB that the school *is* still being used for the A.P.P.L.E. program and for other purposes such as professional development.

I think that you would have to be invited to attend the A.P.P.L.E. program. The phone number in the original post from 2008 is still the main number for the school.
