Mount Academy

Student Life

A sense of belonging

We believe in fostering a strong sense of community and inclusivity among all our students, whether they reside in the dorms or come from the local area. Weekend activities are designed to be inclusive, providing opportunities for both dorm kids and local kids to participate and bond together.

For students living in the dorms, weekend events serve as a chance to engage with their peers and create lasting friendships. These activities become a home away from home, where dorm kids can immerse themselves in fun and enriching experiences, helping them form a close-knit dormitory family. At the same time, we warmly welcome local students to join in the weekend activities. Opening our doors to local kids promotes a sense of belonging and unity within the school community.

The interaction between dorm kids and local kids fosters understanding, cultural exchange, and shared experiences, enriching the overall educational journey for everyone involved. Whether outdoor adventures, cultural outings, or on-campus events, the blend of dorm and local kids creates a vibrant and diverse atmosphere. Through these shared experiences, students develop lifelong friendships, expand their horizons, and build character, all while feeling part of a supportive and inclusive community at Mount Academy.



The Gables of PEI

The Mount Academy takes pride in providing a warm and inviting dormitory experience for our students. Our dorms are not just places to stay; they are beautiful homes where students live and learn in a supportive and nurturing environment. Each dormitory is thoughtfully designed to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere, with comfortable common areas for socializing and studying. Our dedicated staff ensures that students are well-supervised, guaranteeing their safety and well-being at all times. We understand the importance of creating a second home for our students, where they can form deep connections, build lifelong friendships, and thrive academically and personally. It's our commitment to offering a secure and comfortable living space that complements the exceptional education we provide at our school.
Billet Family

Billet Family

Choosing to live with a billet family is a unique and enriching experience for students at our private school. It offers an alternative to traditional dormitory living, allowing students to become part of a local family's life and community. The decision to live with a billet family is a testament to a student's willingness to embrace cultural diversity, broaden their horizons, and foster personal growth. It provides an opportunity to form deep and meaningful connections, often leading to lifelong friendships. Living with a billet family offers students a chance to experience the daily rhythms and customs of the local culture, making their educational journey more holistic and immersive. It's a choice that goes beyond accommodation; it's an adventure that contributes significantly to a well-rounded education and personal development.

Activity & Adventure

Prince Edward Island is a treasure trove of fun-filled activities. Explore the island's stunning beaches, where you can build sandcastles, swim, or soak up the sun. Discover the rich cultural heritage at Green Gables, the inspiration for Anne of Green Gables, or immerse yourself in history at the many museums and heritage sites. Embark on outdoor adventures like hiking the scenic trails, biking along the Confederation Trail, or trying your hand at kayaking and paddleboarding in serene waters.  PEI offers delightful activities that promise unforgettable experiences and cherished memories.     

A Place to Belong & Explore

This is a place where we embrace differences and support personal expression. We value inclusion and encourage exploration. We provide learning opportunities beyond the classroom — hiking, visiting with seniors, hearing guest speakers, or attending sporting events. Whatever the opportunity, students have endless chances to expand their horizons.

Regional Excursions

While there is plenty to do on campus—from recreation and fitness to student-led activities—we take advantage of our proximity to nature. We focus on exploring new places, staying active and reducing stress. We believe some of the best learning happens when students are challenged outside their comfort zone.

Is Mount Academy the School For You?

Our philosophy is that hard work and personal growth are critical to reaching greater heights both in school and in life. We know that having caring, intelligent and dedicated people is crucial to the success of any organization. Our students feel proud knowing they’re part of a community that strives to help them be the best they can be.
