Now Accepting Grade 9 Students

It’s time to look at school applications for the fall! Picking a school may be tough, especially with so much information to look at. Our September 2021 intake is open, and we’ll cover everything you need to know.

The Basics

Canada Royal Arts High School is one of the only arts-oriented high schools
in the Vancouver area, Canada. We are dedicated to providing students with
a well-rounded educational experience, thus preparing them for life outside
of school. We are specialized in visual arts, but we also offer a regular stream program for those students not interested in the arts. Our focus on the arts allows us to create an atmosphere of creativity and innovation for all students. Our teachers pay close attention to each individual student to maximize their learning abilities. We believe that building close relationships and collaborating with each other is an absolute necessity to create a positive working environment

What Makes Us Different?

1. We are the only private high school in BC that implements dual-track education and offers art specialty classes.

2. We have a university placement service that allows your child to enter the dream of possibilities when it comes to choosing the best university.

3. Our small class sizes (1-15) allow students to learn effectively and safely with enhanced COVID-19 measures in place.

4. Our expert academic, art, and design high school can help your child discover the best undergraduate program
