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.
  • 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!

Panther parents and guardians are requested to provide your feedback through the 2016 School Climate Survey available by clicking here.

Why do we implement the School Climate Survey?
This survey relates to our ongoing efforts to support well‐being and provide positive school experiences for all students. Students in Grades 4 to 12 at all schools in the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board are being asked to participate. School‐based staff and families will also be invited to have their voices heard through similar surveys.  This input will assist us in planning forward.

Your opinion matters and we hope that you will take the time to invest in your community school.  Thank you in advance.

The next school council meeting is Tuesday, May 31st at 6:30 pm.  New members are always welcome and encouraged.
