Arts

All is possible in the imagination

Our vibrant arts program benefits boy's intellectual, personal and social development. Through creative expression, boys quickly develop confidence and talents they didn't know they had.
    • UCC's annual spring arts festival each April, Nuit Bleue, showcases student creativity.

Boys acquire self-confidence and team-building skills through their involvement in our first-rate visual arts, music, dramatic arts and film programs. Our programs include 14 music ensembles and six co-ed threatre productions across the school. Parents play a key role by participating in the Arts Booster Club (ABC), which promotes arts-related events and achievements across campus.
 
Research points to a fundamental relationship between grounding in the arts and the development of key cognitive skills and capacities required to master other core subjects, including reading, writing and mathematics. In a nutshell: arts learning inspires students to find their creativity and improves motivation, concentration, confidence and teamwork.
 
The arts at UCC provide myriad opportunities for self-expression, personal growth and cultural appreciation. Many graduates have gone on to careers as architects, painters, sculptors, graphic and interior designers, curators, musicians, actors, producers and film and television directors.
