Embracing Arts while Empowering Hearts - Central School of The Arts



Built from over 150 years of success in the Barrie community, Central High School is now being transformed into an all new educational experience for students. This new transformation will continue to grow the already strong reputation of Central as a centerpoint for arts and academics.

Music, Drama, Dance through to Math, Science and Literature.

The key to Central's new success will be founded on a approach to learning that deviates from the main-stream methods of education.

Groomed for Success:

Almost any struggling student can be transformed into a thriving student simply by changing how materials are presented. At Central School of The Arts, we leverage students minds in a new way. We present materials in ways that an artist or often "gifted" student will connect with. Our education approach is guaranteed to be like nothing you have ever experienced.


A student does not need to be an active artist to benefit from our programs but we do strongly leverage the great benefits of the arts to grow and instil new confidence in every one of our students.
By mixing our new approaches with some of the best arts teaching Ontario can offer, we have provided a new recipe for great success.

Will my child receive the complete education they need through Central School of The Arts?

Often private education / schools are perceived as an elitist form of education because they not only meet but rather exceed curriculum standards on a regular base. Central School of The Arts is no exception to this rule. We not only meet curricular requirements but exceed these requirements in every way possible.
