Karen Kain School of the Arts is a unique middle level Arts Focused school, named after the distinguished Canadian dancer, Artistic Director of the National Ballet of Canada and leader in the arts community. KKSA opened its doors on September 2, 2008. Students attending KKSA enter only at the grade 6 level. At KKSA the Ontario curriculum is taught through a differentiated program which integrates Dance, Drama, Vocal Music, Visual Arts and Media. Arts integration and a generalist approach to the Arts is what differentiates the curriculum and teaching strategies at KKSA. It is our expectation at KKSA that our students will continue to gain expertise in the arts and that they will become life long supporters and enthusiasts of the Arts.
