Afternoon Arts is a special program for dedicated and skilled arts students. Students who demonstrate excellence and discipline in Music, Visual Arts, and Media Arts may participate one or more terms after they have been accepted into a specific area. New students are directed to contact Mrs. Lim, the Afternoon Arts Coordinator, and apply for the winter/spring term of their admitted year.
The following guidelines should be read thoroughly before signing up for an Afternoon Arts program.
- All students are required to be involved in some form of supervised activity during the period designated for that purpose, each day when school is in session, unless otherwise excused. All students enrolled in Afternoon Arts must participate in a fitness regimen equal to at least two hours of physical activity per week under the direction of an authorized arts instructor. Repeated failure to attend these workouts will result in removal from the Afternoon Arts program.
- Third and fourth form students may participate in up to two terms (fall, winter, or spring) of afternoon arts during the academic year, but not all students who apply are guaranteed acceptance into the Afternoon Arts program of their choice. Arts Department approval is required.
- Third and fourth form students, who participate in Afternoon Arts, must also participate as players, in at least one term of interscholastic sports during the term in which they elect not to participate in Afternoon Arts.
- As a general rule, students may not enroll in afternoon arts after enrollment deadlines have passed. Students may not apply to the Afternoon Arts program after they have been cut from a sport. Arts should be their primary focus, not a fallback if other things don't work out.
