1.1 ArtsCalibre Academy's Kindergarten/Elementary programs are located at Emmanuel Baptist Church. Does that mean that they are religion-based?
No. The focus of all our programs, including Preschool, is on academic excellence and personal enrichment through an Arts-enriched curriculum — delivered through music, dance, drama and visual arts.
In locating at Emmanuel Baptist Church, we are grateful beneficiaries of their wonderful support and hospitality, and excellent facilities. That's part of the reason why we are able to keep our class sizes so low, and tuition fees so reasonable compared to other private schools.

Our Junior Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Elementary programs (Grades 1 to 5) are a non-profit society known as the ArtsCalibre Foundation, which was incorporated in BC on August 31, 2011.
