About Us

Image of exterior of North Addington Education Centre.Welcome to North Addington Education Centre, a unique Kindergarten to Grade 12 school located in the heart of Mazinaw Country in Cloyne. Most of the school's population of about 300 students come from the surrounding townships of Addington Highlands and North Frontenac. NAEC is a small school with a warm and caring atmosphere, where students and staff work together to make the school an exciting place. Students enjoy a great learning experience with small classes, increased one-on-one opportunities with teachers, and a safe, familial environment. 

Whether our students have chosen a path that takes them directly to work after secondary school or to college or university first, our goal is to prepare them in such a way that they have all of the necessary requirements and the transition is smooth. Students are offered a wide range of academic subjects as well as the opportunity to develop skills and earn credits through co-operative education placements and peer tutoring assignments. 

In addition to our excellent academic program, secondary students have the opportunity to get involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities such as athletics at both the varsity and intramural level, instrumental and vocal music, the arts and technology which, in some cases, allows students to compete at the district level and beyond. 

NAEC is very thankful for the tremendous support we receive from our community. The school serves as a centre for numerous continuous activities. On any given night you can find people, young and old, taking part in recreational sports, evening interest classes, clubs and community special events.

Our school motto:  "A caring community providing excellence in education" is reflected in all aspects of North Addington Education Centre.
