  • 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.
  • 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 forr pstents 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!

Venture is a unique academic enrichment opportunity for motivated grade 9 and 10 Panthers.  The program has in-class and extra-curricular dimensions and will provide students with outstanding preparation for post-secondary life.  Students are timetabled together for a minimum of one course per semester to ensure that their learning can extend to and from the classroom.  21st Century skill development will enhance their educational experience beyond the classroom through the use of technology, experiential and hands on activities that encourages collaboration and critical thinking.

Venture can lead to the University Advanced Placement Opportunities in grades 11 and 12 in addition to enrichment certificates.  Students selected for this program will have opportunities for many trips that are student funded but participation will be inclusive with financial assistance available if necessary.  These trips have included Montreal, Washington and Chicago.  Students are required to complete several independent learning opportunities and must also report back to their fellow learners as to what they have done to enrich their own learning.
