Central Commerce's excellence is rooted in many things - solid community support, a strong work ethic among its staff and a student body dedicated to making their school the best it can be. Our Alumni exemplifies this as a strong body, providing a link to the school for many graduates and former staff members. They played a significant role during our Centennial Celebrations. This raised over $10,000 for future scholarships.
Our hallways can often be mistaken for an art gallery where student work, always of a very high quality, is on display. Our Arts program includes courses in visual design, photography, digital media, and arts and crafts. Our SHSM in Arts&Culture, provides students with opportunities to explore careers in the industry through field trips, guest speakers and workshops. Read more about The Arts
