More than a school
It’s belonging to a warm and welcoming school community that supports your child every step of the way. It’s a place where students are encouraged to discover who they are as individuals, and are guided to identify what they are passionate about so that they can thrive. It’s developing students into innovative, courageous and compassionate global citizens who go beyond theory and take action to make change. It’s instilling in our students an ability and a responsibility to make a difference in the world and leave the community better than they found it.
Founded in 1842 and established in Newmarket since 1909, Pickering College’s vision is to develop innovative, courageous and compassionate global citizens who take action, true to Quaker values.
