Inaugural award to recognize young alumni achievements

Pickering College is excited to announce our new Alumni Keystone Award, an award designed to recognize the outstanding contributions our young alumni make through their professional, academic or volunteer achievements, to leave our world greater, better and more beautiful than they discovered it.
A keystone is the wedge-shaped piece at the crown of the arch, something on which associated pieces depend on for support.  Similarly, our young alumni are emerging community leaders who others depend on for inspiration, guidance and action.
Nominations will be accepted until March 31, 2023.

When your time at Pickering College as a student comes to an end, we hope you will stay connected as a member of the PC community. There are many ways for you to keep in touch! Keep your mailing and email address up to date to receive The Pillars magazine and our monthly alumni e-newsletter, Alumni Connects. There are events throughout the year where you can gather with fellow alumni to reconnect, reminisce, and build connections. Join Reunion Weekend or the Charles F. Boyd Invitational Golf Tournament, an annual get together for you and your PC friends. You can also volunteer your time and talent for a school committee or help organize a reunion for your class, residence, club or team.

Supporting Pickering College

I am positive that my success at the Schulich School of Business is a direct result of the values and ethics that I developed at Pickering College, none of which would have been possible without the support of the generous scholarship I received.
– Adam Camenzuli, ‘06

Since 1842, Pickering College has been educating boys and girls by “finding the light in every child,” finding and growing the special talents of each individual. Through devoted faculty, constantly improving educational resources, and increasing leadership opportunities, our graduates are prepared to face the challenges of their world. They proudly join the PC alumni ranks, and the ranks of those who honour PC by giving back in recognition of what the school provided them.

In the tradition of every notable independent school, there is a critical role for alumni to play in providing the financial support that bridges the gap to keep our school thriving. This might be through an annual gift, providing funding for scholarships and bursaries, or support for endowments. Right now, there is an exciting opportunity to support the future of the school by investing in the building of the Centre for Creativity and Innovation, through the Light The Way capital campaign

Increasingly, PC alumni are also donating their time to act as student mentors and advisors, or on the Board and Corporation and event committees. Please consider what your donations of time and/or treasure can achieve, and give today!

Contact Jessie-May Rowntree, Assistant Head of School, Advancement at or call 905-895-1120 ext. 234 for further information on ways to give, including the powerful effect of leaving a gift to PC in your will, or make your donation online today.
