The Albert College arts program encourages creativity and confidence in our students. From Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 students engage in artistic instruction. All classes are led by faculty, specialized artists and instructors and are tailored to each student’s abilities to ensure a challenging program.

School-wide events and drama productions, musical performance opportunities and art exhibits provide students the opportunity to share their talents and build their confidence in all areas of the arts. Students are exposed to the arts either in class or during Arts Period - a unique program that is offered three times per week, in addition to regular arts classes.

The arts program at Albert College allows students to express their creative side. Students are actively involved in theatrical, musical and visual arts.

The love of music is introduced in Pre-Kindergarten and nurtured to include participation in choirs from Grade 1 to Grade 6.  Instrumental music is introduced in Grade 4 with the recorder and then expanded to include various wind instruments and percussion as they move through the junior grades.
