The Chilliwack School District is dedicated to providing our students with outstanding learning opportunities. With the opening of this new secondary school in September 2021, we will provide specialized integrated arts and technology programming for our students (K - 12) at three sites:
- FG Leary Fine Arts Elementary (K - 5)
- AD Rundle Middle School (6 - 8)
- Integrated Arts and Technology Secondary School (9 - 12)
This new campus will provide students in their final four years with a program which embraces the four pillars of an integrated arts and technology program:
- Integration of Disciplines
- Authentic Learning
- Collaborative Culture
- Visionary Staff
How Did We Get Here?
The Chilliwack School District purchased the former University of the Fraser Valley site at 45669 Yale Road in January of 2019. In an effort to assess the needs of the school district and the community, a public consultation process was undertaken in the spring of 2019. Results of the consultation were presented to the Chilliwack Board of Education at the May 14, 2019 Board of Education Meeting. At this meeting the Board approved a new Integrated Arts and Technology school of choice for grades 9 - 12 at this site. Also approved was a grade 6 - 8 Arts and Technology cohort at AD Rundle Middle School.
