Welcome to Afton School of the Arts
We believe that imagination inspires the love of learning, and that the arts are essential to a rich and meaningful education. The Arts Core program provides arts-oriented programming that emphasizes art, music, drama and dance as enrichment to the Alberta curriculum. We are committed to improving student achievement, and we believe that the Arts provide the perfect vehicle to support and encourage learning. We encourage our students to rise to the challenge of discovering their own talents and interests and to excel in all areas of their school lives.
In partnership with our parents and community, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment that enables all of our students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and culturally. We have an outstanding, dedicated staff with high expectations for student achievement and behaviour. We are proud to have supportive parents and positive, caring and creative children as partners in learning. Parent involvement is an essential part of our success, and we value the participation of parents as members of our learning community.
The heart of our school lies in the joy to play, the passion to create, and the commitment to community. Join us at Afton School of the Arts for a learning experience that goes beyond the ordinary.
