Catholic high schools
St. Ann's Academy remained a high school until 1970. Unable to keep up with the changing demands of B.C.'s curriculum, it reverted to an elementary school. In 1980, Bishop Adam Exner asked the Congregation of Christian Brothers to open the high school section and in September 1981, St. Ann's Academy became a high school again.
