Peterborough Collegiate

This 1908 school faces Confederation Square and blends with the civic buildings typical of the era. In 1927, another wing was added and, in the 1970s, a modern cafeteria. Follow in the footsteps of famous alumni Serena Ryder, Jim Balsillie and Lester B. Pearson as you admire grand staircases, original wainscotting, terrazzo floors and stained glass at this heritage gem.
