Media School is a dynamic, integrated program that helps Grade 11 students grow into independent learners in a caring community setting. Through various short film projects such as music videos, movie monologues, documentaries and 6 Roles Films, students develop filmmaking skills such as screenwriting, directing, editing, lighting, acting, costuming, makeup and sound recording. Unique experiences in Media School include our semi-annual leadership retreat, where we make films and develop community, and an escape room, where students hone their production design, costuming, makeup and acting skills. All of this is done in the Media School facility with editing workstations, no bells and the freedom to explore learning.
In Media School, 16 to 20 students join in a hands-on, real-world intensive education focused on authentic film and media production. Media School takes all kinds. If you are passionate about movies (watching them and making them), screenwriting, acting and directing, costuming, makeup, editing and anything else related to film, Media School may be the program for you. We take top academic students and students who struggle in the traditional school model. We accept students who are passionate about filmmaking regardless of experience.
