Byng Arts Mini Program

The Byng Arts Mini School, established in 1999, is for above average students whose energies and passions are dedicated to the Fine Arts. As a school-within-a-school, Byng Arts is comprised of staff, students, and parents operating within the larger artistic and academic communities of Vancouver. Successful applicants will also be curious and self-motivated, with a demonstrated record of strong academic achievement.
Byng Arts students specialize in one of the following areas: Band, Choir, Drama, Media Arts, Strings, or Visual Arts (further opportunities are available in Literary Arts in Grade 9 and above), and attend several of their academic classes (including English, Social Studies and Science)together as a cohort of motivated learners.
In addition to an enriched curriculum, all students in Byng Arts participate in events that feature community artists, musicians and performers, thereby strengthening the collaboration between Byng and the professional arts community.
