Fine Arts Core Education

The Fine Arts Core Education Program is offered at FACE Elementary and High School.

From Kindergarten to Secondary V, Fine Arts Core Education allows students to adapt to 4 artistic disciplines: visual arts, theatre/drama, vocal and instrumental music. Those more gifted or motivated are able to showcase their talents in complementary activities such as the jazz band, the symphony orchestra, plays, etc.

The aim of the program is not to train professional artists but rather to assist students in their development and help them thrive, so as to better succeed in their education. The arts are an excellent learning ground for developing personal discipline, determination, and the growth of a sense of achievement and self-confidence, so vitally important for the student’s character. In a world becoming more and more technical and complex, it is the school’s obligation to offer a program that is above and beyond basic disciplinary learning. It is essential to challenge students and show them examples of human creativity and intelligence.
