Class Sizes and Wait Lists


To ensure the highest quality teaching, each class has a strictly enforced class size. We believe these sizes ensure optimal focus and productivity, equal learning and performance opportunities, as well as allow for students to receive personalized programming and guidance from their instructions.
Due to demand for program spots, wait lists typically exist for all program levels. Students will be advised if they have been placed on wait lists. Wait-listed students could be called for enrolment until the third class of the program.
