Queen Elizabeth Collegiate and Vocational Institute (QECVI), or "QE", is a High School in north Kingston, Ontario, Canada.


QECVI opened in 1955 and since that time has instituted a number of programs focusing on specific career paths. Thriving on the enrichment of the Focus Programs due in part to former principal, J.R. Mulville, the school remained opened after a long debate in 1989 that almost left the school merging with Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School. J.R. Mulville referred to the focus programs as "a prime example of new ways of delivering curricula in schools, as well as a better way of teaching math and English for kids that need a different approach to things." [Shuttleworth, D (1993). "Enterprise Learning in Action: Education and Economic Renewal for the Twenty-First Century", Routledge, p.79.] It has been suggested that in future, Queen Elizabeth Collegiate and Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute (KCVI) may be merged into a single school to be built on the grounds of QECVI, since Queen's University has expressed interest in acquiring the existing KCVI, which is located adjacent to its campus.

QE has won the K-Rock Partners in Mission Food Drive for the past four years.


QE offers grades 9 - 12 with a variety of "Focus Programs" that include Theatre Complete, Creative Arts, Cover-up and Upholstery, Culinary Arts and High Performance Athletics.


QECVI's sports teams are known as the "Raiders" and participate in a wide variety of sports. It's teams have had recent success in Basketball, Rugby, and Baseball.

Red Raiders

They were at one time known as the "Red Raiders" until the name was changed because of perceived racial overtones.

Uniform Colours

The original school colours were also changed from the traditional red, yellow and white to red and black, due to confusion created when QECVI played Sydenham High School in high school sports.
