AT PURCELL COLLEGIATE, WE ARE WORKING TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN PRIVATE AND PUBLIC EDUCATION. THIS GUIDING PRINCIPLE IS A CORNERSTONE OF THE SCHOOL’S FOCUS ON BEING COMPLEMENTARY TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, NOT COMPETITIVE WITH IT.
Purcell Collegiate School is an in-development international boarding school for students in Grades 7 through 12.
Using a pioneering engagement model that is unique to the education sector, Purcell Collegiate is an opportunity for international students to live and learn in Canada at a school focused on sustainability, guided by the First People’s Principles of Learning, and dedicated to fostering self-awareness, personal resolve and leadership.
As you explore our website, you will gain insight into what makes Purcell Collegiate so special. You will see a vision for a school and community where students are engaged and inspired to achieve not only for themselves but for one another.
They will learn to work together to build a better future for the global community and the planet.
We welcome any enquiries you may have.
