FALL 2020 Orientation Letter



Dear Parents and Students,


These are unprecedented and challenging times, but the staff of Mayfield's Regional Arts program is determined to find positivity and growth through this pandemic.  We will be making changes to ensure the safety of our students and staff, but the guiding principle for any changes will be our desire to strive for what defines this program: infusing creativity and joy into a dynamic, challenging and unique learning environment.  The Arts continue to serve as a positive force in dark times.  Please read the newsletter (link) from your discipline in which each department will try to bring some clarity to our direction and attempt to answer some questions as we all head into a constantly changing school landscape.  Above all, please know that your RAP teachers have your best interests in mind and that we will be updating you regularly as things evolve.


The key question for most families is around RAP status for students who choose distance learning during this extraordinary school year:


If I opt for distance learning, what impact does that have on my status as a RAP student?


  • In a word, none.  Students who opt for distance learning may not be able to earn RAP credits from home, but they are still RAP students!  Even if you don't return to school until September 2021, you retain your RAP status.
  • We encourage you to keep up with what is going on in your RAP class by being involved in the Brightspace/Google Classroom for your class, but this is optional.
  • You will still earn your RAP certificate, even if you are studying from home for the entirety of the 2020 - 2021 school year.


Please open the link on your disciplines page for specific information.







​​​Mayfield's Regional Arts Program for September 2020 is now FULL!


Check back in September 2020 for important dates etc.. for September 2021 entrance. 




Visual Arts


Unfortunately as a result of this unprecedented time of COVID-19, our Semester Two 2020 RAP Visual Arts Shows were cancelled.


However, we are very thankful of our partnership with Peel Art Gallery;, Museum & Archives (PAMA) as they have enabled a creative solution with our Grade 11 RAP Visual Arts "Home" Art Show to continue through a virtual exhibition.  This innovative platform will showcase our students interpretations of the word home in the abstract.  We are so appreciative that our students hard-work will have the opportunity to be shared with our Peel community.  Thank you again PAMA!!


We invite you to view our students artwork at PAMA's website and enjoy the show!  #MUSEUMFROMHOME @visitpama




 Welcome to Mayfield's Regional Arts Program (RAP) 



We offer a programme 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 .  If the candidate meets the threshold he/she will go into the random selection (lottery) for a spot in the program


There is a yearly Regional Arts Program (RAP) fee 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.
