Pickering College - Learning For Life. Creating The Future.

Boarding Program

We understand that the decision to have your child attend boarding school during these unprecedented times is a difficult one. This year, like every other year, our planning focuses on providing your child with the safest boarding environment that will be their "home away from home" for the school year.

There are many changes that we will be implementing for the sake of student safety and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting. We are dedicated to our "family atmosphere and groups.” This year our Boarding Families will also be the cohort (small group) of students in boarding with whom they live closest and share washrooms. We will continue to provide the caring, nurturing environment to which you have come to depend and that ensures students in boarding to develop maturity, self-confidence, independence and resilience. We want to work together with you to ensure that your child has the best experience possible under these unique circumstances. Rest assured, we will care for your child with attention to their well-being and success.    

If you have any questions about boarding, please feel welcome to contact Laura Mason - Director of Boarding and Health Services at lmason@pickeringcollege.on.ca.
