With rich learning experiences for students of all ages, a variety of athletic & extra-curricular opportunities, and excellent facilities, PECI continues a more than 60-year tradition of serving the families of Prince Edward County to ensure our young people experience success at school and beyond.
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 see themselves as connected citizens of the world. Our learners apply their knowledge and skills to make a difference in their local, national, and global communities.
Our focus on academic excellence means we are committed to the continuous development of dynamic, inclusive educational experiences. We believe in learning opportunities that ensure that all of our students grow as capable, confident, curious learners who experience success.
Dedication to the Arts
We believe that communication through self-expression is essential to the creative development of each student, K-12. In classrooms and dedicated courses students are encouraged to explore their own dramatic, musical and visual arts abilities. Students across grades have access to learning spaces and resources that allow them to develop talents connected to the Arts.
Innovating With Technology
Technological innovation influences all areas of life. Technological education at PECI in both our classrooms and dedicated course studies 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.
Learning Through Athletics
Physical activity and athletics have a major impact on students both in and out of the classroom. At PECI, our students learn about the connection between healthy bodies and health minds. As members of extra-curricular sports teams, they learn leadership, the importance of working together as a team and strength of character.
Digital Citizens Learning & Embracing Possibilities Today & Tomorrow
Our students are highly connected as they leverage digital formats. They learn how to self-regulate and manage the tools of our 21st century world in order to position themselves as active leaders and learners today and tomorrow!
Feel The Spirit of Prince Edward Collegiate Institute
The ultimate student experience that engaged the whole student is our primary focus, with an emphasis on mental, physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. We offer a highly supportive environment, a profound sense of community, and a commitment to Panther pride where school spirit is contagious!
