Vision Mission Values text with working gears

Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education (CCRCE) is comprised of approximately 2,700 staff, all striving to provide a well-rounded education for almost 20,000 students in Pre-Primary to grade 12.

Our region is made up of 65 schools in central and northern Nova Scotia, stretching from the New Brunswick border to the Antigonish County line and from the Northumberland Strait to the Halifax Regional Municipality.

CCRCE is broken into four families of schools; Celtic (Pictou County area), Chignecto (Cumberland County), Cobequid (Colchester County), and Nova (Municipality of East Hants and the lower area of Colchester County). Each family of schools has a family of schools office and supervisor. For a list of our current supervisors and contact information, visit Family of School Supervisors.
