Students realize their potential and nurture their unique talents outside of the classroom through our Creativity, Action, Service and Enrichment (C.A.S.E.) activities. A wide range of opportunities complement the academic curriculum and enrich the lives of students by strengthening their creative thinking, problem solving, creative judgment, aesthetic sense, physical development, social interaction and leadership skills.
The Arts are an integral and crucial element in nurturing creativity and the advancement of cognitive function. We provide a rich offering of visual and performing arts experiences for students in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 12. Students develop artistic skills and creative expression through music, dance and drama opportunities.
