The Canadian College of Performing Arts offers courses Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 8:30pm (12 hours per day) and Saturday 9am – 6pm (9 hours), with an optional 2 hour rehearsal block when necessary to prepare for performances throughout the school year. This allows for a total of 60+ hours of classroom instruction per week, excluding meal breaks, making CCPA’s professional training programs some of the most rigorous and intensive in the country.

We encourage students who may be considering an alternative program to compare the cost of that program against the program hours they will receive. Some comparable programs appear to offer reduced fees on an annual basis while also offering reduced program hours, making the cost of training per hour much higher. In addition to offering a higher number of program hours at a reduced cost, the College’s schedule allows time for summer employment or artistic endeavours and is completed in 20 months.

|Tuition||$11,775 x 2 years||$9,200 x 3 years|
