Wexford Special Series Visual & Media Arts Program


Our Special Series Art program offers an accelerated and enriched arts curriculum covering Grades 9 -11 Ministry of Education requirements and a Media Arts/Communication Technology course in the first two years of high school. This gives students the opportunity to use Grade 11 and 12 to experience and explore specialized courses not offered by traditional art programs.

Special Series Masters - This 12 art credit program is designed for students wishing to attend a post-secondary Fine Arts destination.

Special Series Honours - This 8 art credit program is designed for students wishing to pursue a career/post-secondary destination that may require specific courses for admission [e.g. Architecture], or students not pursuing a career directly related to the Arts [e.g. Life Sciences].
