The Arts Unionville program is a package of eight specialized arts courses for artistically talented students interested in Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Arts. The Arts Unionville program is held at Unionville High School.
This specialized arts program is available to students residing in CEC East for Dance, Drama, Visual Arts and Music: Winds and Vocal. Students wishing to study Strings may apply from York Region CEC East, North and West (not students residing in the Alexander Mackenzie HS catchment area). Students wishing to study Piano may apply from all areas of York Region, no boundary restrictions.
At each grade level students can expect to work with guest
artists, attend performances/exhibitions and perform or exhibit their work at
venues such as the Markham Theatre, UHS, other schools and many community
locations. Field trips outside of Canada are scheduled periodically. The Arts
faculty includes the staff, many of whom are specialists in their field, and
guest artists, both working professionals and university arts students. The Arts
Unionville program services the needs of artistically talented students,
some of whom are exploring the possibility of a career in the Arts while others
simply enjoy the arts and want to delveop their skills.
