The Wexford Difference
“My training…was comparable to students in post-secondary programs,” explains a former student and recipient of the Glenna Carr Sheridan National Digital Media Scholarship. “Many students like me… in first and second year college and university programs… were at the head of their classes, as we had learned such technique and software programs at Wexford.”  Our visual and performing arts students achieve strong academic results.  Another exciting difference at Wexford is the state-of-the-art WexFit Centre devoted to aerobic and weight training. The centre is open before, during and after school. All students take physical education, and our facilities include a swimming pool, and full-size football field. There is a common lunch hour, and many extracurricular activities to fill that time.
