Practice Your Art at Halton's ONLY Arts-Academic Private High School


It is the philosophy and purpose of the Burlington Royal Arts Academy to provide an education for students with strong potential and diverse backgrounds who may be expected to assume positions of responsibility and leadership in a rapidly changing world. Through our small classes, creative teaching, and an approach which emphasizes the process of learning, we seek to discover unique aptitudes and awaken the intellectual curiosity of every student at our school.

Here are five reasons why the Burlington Royal Arts Academy should be your top choice for education.

  1. The Arts Programme at the Burlington Royal Arts Academy offers students opportunities to stretch their creativity while showcasing and developing their talents. Our programming provides academic instruction in Animation, Dance, Drama, Media, Musical Theatre, Music (Instrumental, Jazz, Rock, and Vocal), and Visual Arts.
  2. We acknowledge and celebrate the rich complexity and diversity of life experiences that our students, faculty, staff, and families contribute to our community, and we work to build inclusivity within our school. With local and international students, we emphasize teaching and practicing cross-cultural effectiveness skills, learning about one’s own and other cultures through cultural self-awareness and intelligence.
  3. The Burlington Royal Arts Academy class sizes are small by design. With a 6:1 student to teacher ratio, we believe quality education is best accomplished in a small environment where students are able to engage in thoughtful conversations with their peers and develop meaningful relationships with their teachers.

  4. Flexibility
    Throughout BRAA’s history, we have had to exercise flexibility in our timetables and scheduling. We have successfully learned how to think on our feet when unexpected changes occur. Adapting to new norms, adjusting plans, and creatively utilizing our resources have become a distinctive part of the Burlington Royal Arts Academy community.
  5. Accommodating
    The Burlington Royal Arts Academy recognizes that no one family is the same and is committed to meeting each student’s particular needs. Our faculty and administration know and interact with each BRAA family on a personal level. We believe by prioritizing our student’s well-being this will help them develop into the leaders of tomorrow.
