We are a comprehensive high school that provides our students with an excellent bridge between high school and university, college and the workplace.

We offer many unique programs including Alternative Education, Co-Operative Education, Dual Credits, Extended French, Focus Programs, Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs, Specialist High Skills Major and a School-to-Community program. As well as the academic opportunities offered to students, the school has excellent sports and music programs as well as many special interest clubs.

We draw our students from five elementary schools in the region. Roughly two-thirds of our student population come from rural areas. The remaining students come from built-up areas surrounding the communities of Amherstview, Yarker, Bath, Millhaven and Morven that are part of Loyalist and Stone Mills Townships in the County of Lennox and Addington.

Ernestown has a long tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, extra-curricular activities and community involvement. All students are encouraged to strive for academic excellence, demonstrate respect for themselves, others and the environment as well as become actively involved in life as an Ernestown Eagle.
