Boarding students from around the world

Boarding Life

Boarding Life at a Top Boarding School in Canada

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.” This allows them to form 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.

In boarding, students are supported and challenged to follow their dreams - It’s a place 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.

For the 2021-2022 school year, we have put in place many measures in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the boarding section of the Safety Plan.
