We offer a package of specialized courses to artistically talented students interested in Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Arts. In addition to the arts program, students study required and optional academic courses to earn their secondary school diploma. An audition to determine the appropriateness of this program for each student is held in January for admission to the following September. A student chooses only one of the four arts in which to audition: Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Arts. Admissions decisions are based on the candidate's talent in her/his chosen art, potential, overall school performance and the student's ability to benefit fully from the program.
A yearly upgrade charge is required to cover "Artist in the Classroom", in-house concerts and performances, workshops, master classes, group clinics, professional artists, exhibitions, accompanists for Dance and Music classes, and many more. Other material or field trip fees might apply for some courses.
As in all situations, students who are having difficulty with the program will be identified by teachers. Communication with parents/guardians is on-going and support will be recommended. The student's progress will also be reviewed at each reporting cycle. Students may be discussed at the In School Review Committee for additional support.
At any time, and in consultation with the teachers, counsellor and support staff, the Vice Principal may put a student on probation for the following semester. The Vice-Principal will review next steps and expectations with the parents and their teen at the start of the probationary period.
