Welcome to the Perth Campus. Thank you for taking an interest in our "we may not be big, but we're small" approach to training and education. Our small, friendly campus of about 350 students, located in Perth, Ontario (also known as Heritage Perth), is situated between Ottawa and Kingston within an hour's drive from each. Our beautiful campus, located in this lovely setting, enhances your learning by providing a culturally rich community in which to live.
The Perth Campus is well integrated with the Town of Perth and Lanark County. How? Just a few examples include clinical placements in local facilities for the Personal Support Worker students and volunteering by our Police Foundation students. Our rural quintessentially Canadian setting, small student population and small class sizes with lots of one on one attention contribute to a high student success rate in all programs. Come on out and see why our small campus is such a BIG deal.
Our unique heritage trades programs, which draw students from the local community and from across the world, provide learning in a community that was awarded the Prince of Wales Prize for its continued commitment to preserving its rich architectural heritage. Masonry and carpentry projects completed by students can be found throughout Perth and surrounding Lanark County. Perth introduced two new programs in 2019: Computer Programmer and Business - Agriculture.
