Canada Pre-College

November 10, 2020, 11:36 AM · Are there any pre-college programs in Toronto or Ottawa? Montreal?
Before the election we had considered moving north, which got me wondering about programs. (my wife is Canadian and daughter has access to citizenship.)
But regardless, Toronto is about a 4 hour drive (not counting wait at the border.)

November 12, 2020, 7:23 AM · If you enroll in the Glenn Gould school, do you have to bring your own chair?
November 12, 2020, 10:52 AM · Nate, respectfully, that’s incorrect. The Glenn Gould school is a college and only offers bachelors and artist diploma, from my understanding.
Edited: November 12, 2020, 2:08 PM · Hi Mark, I stand corrected. I did have a friend who attended the school before college about 20 years ago. She said GGS used to be the name of the program. This is their current precollege program: https://www.rcmusic.com/training/phil-and-eli-taylor-performance-academy-young-artists
