Arts

Taking a preparatory year can be excellent for introducing a student to what will be expected of him or her in college. This year can serve as a transitory period between high school and university.  

Arts studies incorporate the history, culture, and practice of a variety of different art forms. Examples of topic areas include sculpture, film, painting, musical instruments, theater, and photography. Programs often combine classroom learning with hands-on work.
