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!
