Hear what current students have to say about Burlington Royal Arts Academy:

“I felt very comfortable to study in BRAA. The teachers here are always supporting and helping me to adapt in the school and achieve my goals. The most useful things I learnt in BRAA are not just knowledge and also how to connect with people and respect each other.”

Hear what current students have to say about Burlington Royal Arts Academy:

“My name is Julia and I have been studying in Canada for 3 years. As a first language is not an English student, I really love to being here because I’m feeling that the school is a whole community and a whole family. I feel I’m really getting into this community and I am a part of this big family. All the teachers and students are kind, friendly, hardworking, positive and powerful. I used to study in an all-girl catholic school, all the program they provide are only for students who are going to be a scientist or managers. They don’t offer programs for art students. However, I found art programs in BRAA. They provide lots of art courses for students who are going to choose art as their major in university. They also provide normal courses like business, biology, math, and computer science. This school has a strong teacher program, they helped students to choose where they want to go and what they want to be. Although this school is a small school, I never feel that I have been ignored by somebody. Teachers are paying more attention to you and they care about you more. ”
