  • 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!

  • Panther Programmers Proceed to the Next Round

    Two teams of PECI programmers took part in a board-wide computer programming contest requiring them to program a computer to solve a series of challenging tasks.  At the end of the competition our grade 12 team, consisting of Iain Cameron, Ryan Haskin, and Jake Sullivan had captured 2nd place overall, and the grade 11 team of Nolan Belnap, Wyatt Gilbert, Hannah Hungerford, and Patrik Kelemen placed 3rd.  As a result of these finishes the teams have been invited to move on to represent our school board at an Eastern Ontario Regional Contest to be held at Queen's University at the end of April.

We look forward to seeing you at the PECI's theatre where Something Wicked This Way Comes!

The local Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit has issued a high alert warning for students and youth in the local area.  In recent weeks, highly dangerous drugs have been discovered in circulation and have been linked to several youth deaths in Eastern Ontario.  These deaths have resulted from youth consuming drugs containing illicit fentanyl that appeared to be prescriptions that were illegally sold on the street as well as marijuana, cocaine and other street drugs that were laced.  These drugs and the risk they present are confirmed to be present in our region.  These drugs are highly addictive and in many cases deadly even in small amounts; the chance of over-dosing is extremely high.

As always, the best decision is to avoid the consumption of any illegal or street drugs as that is really the only true way to be safe.  If you do make the choice to use drugs or you believe someone has slipped you a drug at a party and you begin to feel ill, contact help immediately- DO NOT WAIT TO SEE IF THE EFFECTS WEAR OFF.  Similarly, if you see someone who has consumed something and they are acting strangely, show your caring by contacting help or calling 911 immediately.  You need to know that fentanyl is NOT a second chance drug and not something to take a risk with.

All opioids prescription and non-prescription have a risk of overdose. Opioids are a depressant drug, which means that they slow down the part of the brain that controls breathing. Overdose of opioids can result in death because breathing stops.

Students are encouraged to read more from the Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit by clicking here.

Parents are also encouraged to read more by clicking here.  The Health Unit has issued a letter to parents that can be viewed by clicking here.

Panthers...be safe, live clean & be well.  As always, look out for one another.

We stress that it is never acceptable or condoned to take illegal drugs.  We want our students to be well educated regarding the risks that exist in the local Hastings Prince Edward area and how they can help others who may become at risk.  This message is shared in partnership with the Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit as we work together to keep our students safe, healthy, prepared and empowered for the possibilities of today and tomorrow.

As you know, our school board is working through an Accommodation Review Process for schools in Prince Edward County and PECI is part of that process.  

The preliminary recommendation is:  Close Pinecrest Memorial Elementary School and Queen Elizabeth School (Picton) and consolidate students at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute for September 2017.  Close Sophiasburg Central School and move students to Prince Edward Collegiate Institute for September 2018.  Close C.M.L. Snider School and Kente Public School and seek Ministry of Education funding/approval to build a new K-8 elementary school on the CML Snider property or in Wellington for September 2020.  Explore opportunities for community partnerships aligned with the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan priorities.  

Please share your ideas, questions and or concerns regarding the proposal for PEC by completing the anonymous Google Form available by clicking here.  You can also speak to or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , Mrs. Munroe in the Resource Room, Mrs. Bakker in the Main Office, Ms. McMahon or Mr. McFarlane.
