Art Program:

Hillfield Strathallan College is a place where students feel an integrated approach to the arts from the very origin. When exposed to multiple artistic opportunities, our students can discover an area of interest, which, with the HSC faculty's support, develops into a passion.
Creative writing, design, drama, music, photography, poetry, and visual arts are just a few of the many offerings available to students at Hillfield Strathallan College as they progress through the College. Students are afforded various opportunities to present their artistic talents within the College community and are supported to share their passion with organizations outside the walls of HSC.


Athletics plays a vital part in developing lifelong attitudes about health fitness, sportsmanship, and cooperation. Students participating in team sports learn leadership, perseverance, and responsibility. Physical education can also help students develop mental toughness and self-confidence. There is something great about exceeding your limits, pushing through a physical barrier, and achieving something you once believed was out of your reach.

Hillfield Strathallan College welcomes international students. At HSC, an international student is defined as a non-permanent resident or Citizen of Canada.
