"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow"

Moving anywhere, be it from within PEI or from off-Island, is exciting but all very daunting. If you are concerned about what schools to choose and what areas to live in to fall within particular school catchment areas, fear not! Below are the website links to the two school boards for PEI, the Eastern School Board and the Western School Board. Also you will find information on our University (UPEI) and Holland College.

We are fortunate on PEI to have some really great schools, with small class sizes, great facilities and wonderful teachers. Our children also have the opportunity, in some schools, to study French Immersion from Kindergarten age.

College

Holland College is the provincial community college for PEI. It is named after British Army engineer and surveyor Captain Samual Holland.

It was formed by the Government of PEI in 1969 as a result of an education reform policy undertaken as part of the Prince Edward Island Comprehensive Development Plan which saw the closure of the province's two post-secondary institutions structured on religious lines, St. Dunstan's University and Prince of Wales College, and the creation of the non-denominational University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) and Holland College.
