Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board

  • Your Community School

    Prince Edward Collegiate Institute (PECI) is a community secondary school located in Picton, Ontario serving over 600 students from across Prince Edward County. With a strong academic program, a wide variety of athletic & extra-curricular activities, and excellent facilities, PECI continues a more than 50-year tradition of serving all students living in Prince Edward County to ensure their success in the world.
  • Globally Minded Leaders & Learners

    We believe that the most important people in the world walk our halls and aspire to create learning opportunities where our students can collaborate and develop the skills they require to compete in an ever-changing world. PECI…where learning matters!
  • Academic Excellence

    Our focus on academic excellence means we are committed to the continuous development of our programs and courses, how they are designed, and how we deliver them. Our Venture Enrichment program offers our students an outstanding preparation for students in the post-secondary pathway.
  • 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!
  • Digital Citizens Learning & Embracing Possibilities Today & Tomorrow

    Our students are highly connected as they leverage digital and learn how to self-regulate and manage the tools of our 21st century world to position them well academically today and tomorrow!
  • Feel The Spirit of Prince Edward Collegiate Institute

    The ultimate student experience is our primary focus, with an emphasis on mental, physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. We offer a highly supportive environment where spirit is contagious!

PECI in partnership with Hastings Prince Edward Public Heath will be hosting a Grade 7 Vaccination Clinic on Monday, October 16th.  All students who wish to take part must have their permission forms returned to the main office asap.  Forms can be downloaded by clicking here.

PECI is excited to host our first Grade 7 & 8 Parent Open House on October 11tth from 6:00 - 7:00 pm.  The evening is an opportunity to come together for a meet and greet with the staff in the Junior Cafeteria, hear some helpful tips for being a Panther Parent and then proceed up to see the classrooms where your student(s) learn.

We respectfully remind parents that this is not a parent/guardian/teacher interview, rather a social engagement for everyone to enjoy.  Parents and guardians seeking a specific discussion with a teacher regarding their student are requested to contact the school to book an appointment.

Research shows that students who have parents/guardians who are engaged in their learning are more successful in school.  In short, when it matters to you, it matters to our students.  We hope you are able to join us on October 11th,  Happy Fall until we meet again.  #BetterTogether

PECI is excited to invite all interested Panther parents and guardians to join school council for the upcoming school year.  As the composition of our school has diversified, we have changed our school council structure to better meet the needs of our parents.  This year, we will be hosting two school councils - one for grade 7-8 parents/guardians and one for grade 9-12 parents/guardians.  This will allow time for sharing and discussion of items that pertain most to your affected students.

Our first meetings will be this coming Tuesday, September 26th.

Grade 7-8 Parents:  6:00 - 7:00 pm

Grade 9-12 Parents:  7:00 - 8:00 pm

By tradition, we adhere to a one hour meeting schedule to honour the time of all members.  Our parent voices matter and we encourage new and returning members to please join us.  We know that we are better together!
