With more options than ever to support online and distributed learning, it has never been easier to combine high-level performing arts training and academics.

Many students will choose to attend Magee Secondary School’s SPARTS program. Other options include King George Secondary, home schooling, and distributed learning. For the 2022-2023 school year, the Province of British Columbia will launch a new Learning Management System to help more kids learn independently from wherever they are.

Sample Schedule

The really wonderful thing about Arts Umbrella is how practical it is. When I came to Post-Secondary training, I felt like I knew some of the expectations and was therefore able to exceed them, because I’d had this practice.

—Bonnie Duff – Musical Theatre Program, 2010-2015
