Pickering College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Founded in 1842 as a Quaker school, and established in our current Newmarket location in 1909, the mission of Pickering College is to be a leader in education, inspiring individuals to become enlightened citizens who meet high standards for lifelong growth and learning. We develop and instill in our students the attributes, values, knowledge and the self-confidence to be successful. Our students not only develop strong academic skills, but they develop social consciousness and leadership skills in order to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.As part of our Quaker values we celebrate diversity in all aspects of the school. This is reflected both in our Global Leadership Program and our commitment to a co-educational environment. Our unique approach includes educating and developing the ‘whole child’ through a focus on academic excellence, co-curricular distinction, character and leadership development. We pride ourselves in providing an individualized approach to learning.
