Boarding Life at a Top Boarding School in Canada
Pickering College is a warm, vibrant and supportive community of dedicated and caring staff, families and friends. It is a place where students are supported and challenged to follow their dreams and where they can grow and develop into compassionate leaders who have a strong sense of social justice, ethics, environmental consciousness and a determination to make the world a better place. It is a school where kids are excited to come -- where they can develop a global perspective and learn to seize the opportunities before them.
Pickering College works to ensure our boarding students, especially those adjusting to a new culture and climate, ﬁnd a “home away from home”. Starting in Grade 7, students can enjoy a safe, supportive and healthy learning environment living directly on campus. From trips, to group activities, to the “circle of care” that supports the academic and emotional well-being of students; various ongoing Pickering College initiatives help make living away from home a positive and enriching experience. Each student is a member of a boarding "family” and forms lifelong friendships with boarders from across Canada and around the world. Boarding life also provides faculty-supervised study periods, family-style meals, housekeeping services, frequent outings, and a wide range of competitive and recreational activities.
