At Pickering College, we provide a nurturing, supportive and enriching 21st century learning environment for all students. We educate and develop the whole child through a focus on academic excellence, co-curricular distinction, character and leadership development, and by providing an individualized approach to student learning. We know our students and ensure that they are supported and encouraged to meet their individual needs and accomplish their dreams.
Our teachers are caring, empathetic and innovative. They enable each student to develop his/her intellectual, creative, spiritual and athletic potential. Our students are well-rounded individuals who balance a variety of opportunities, feel connected to the school community, and experience personal fulfillment and meaning in their lives.
Our programs build on the special strengths of our community: the personal and individual attention we provide our students; the safe and supportive environment; and the diverse cultures and experiences within our community, including leveraging the strengths of our boarding program.
Pickering College offers all students from JK to Grade 12 exceptional and meaningful learning opportunities through its distinct co-curricular program which is a fundamental part of each student's school experience. If students are to be successful leading a balanced and purposeful life, they must explore and develop their skills and talents beyond the classroom. This program encourages students to participate in a myriad of activities whose common ground is passionate engagement: competitive athletics, recreational sports, diverse clubs, community outreach opportunities and artistic, musical and special interests. The co-curricular program inspires students to strive for excellence, develop imaginative insights and innovative ideas, and to act on their beliefs. Students experience the joy of effort, the ability to create, feel empowered and a sense of accomplishment.
