Parents are best at articulating the experience of having children go through the PCC program.  Here are a couple of reviews:

Caroline Lakah writes: 

"A school where your kids are not just a number, they are encouraged to put their best in everything they do and achieve high.  My daughter graduated 2023 going to one of the best universities in Ontario.  My other daughter is going to her first year in high school and she is extremely excited to be part in all extracurricular activities the school offers.  Best of luck to all PCC students!"

Marie Nakhla writes: 

"I had 3 children, all who started Philopateer from kindergarten until grade 12 graduation.  Two of them are in Grad school (dentistry and Pharmacy) , and the third just started university Health Science.  I can't thank the school and the staff enough , you educated them, and you taught them valuable lessons that will be with them forever. There are so many great qualities about Philopateer , the teachers and staff are dedicated to educating, they are empathetic with students and parents, and for me the most important is they watch over the children and teach them values, morals and always looking to God for guidance.

The memories  and the staff at Philopateer will not be forgotten.

Thank you for giving me peace of mind during their school years."
