ABSTRACT
This paper presents the results of a case study on French language Catholic school choice in Orleans, Ontario. Starting with the results of a series of semi-structured interviews conducted with parents who chose a French language Catholic school for their children, a typology of French language Catholic school choice is presented in order to contribute to the understanding of the cultural and identity ties Franco-Ontarian parents maintain with Catholicism. Following a brief historical overview of the relationship between identity and Catholicism in French Ontario, as well as an outline of the Franco- Ontarian schooling context and of school choice in a cultural perspective, the relationship Franco-Ontarians now hold with Catholicism as a cultural religion will be examined through the question of school choice
