  • Dedication to the Arts

    We believe that communication through self-expression is essential to the creative development of each student. In our art's classrooms, students are encouraged to explore their own dramatic, musical and visual arts abilities and to interact with others in group situations. Students can also get involved with clubs such as the Improv Team and the school play.
  • Innovating With Technology

    Technological innovation influences all areas of life. Technological education at PECI focuses on developing students’ ability to work creatively and competently with technologies to be able to meet the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century. Our students earn dual-credits with Loyalist College through our unique Trading-Up program.
  • Learning Through Athletics

    Physical activity and athletics have a major impact on students both in and out of the classroom. At PECI, our dedicated coaches teach the importance of working together as a team and strength of character. Through sport students learn the leadership skills, how to embrace each other's strengths and how to make up for the other's weaknesses. We are better together!
