Get Familiar: Get first-hand experience of what it’s like to attend ACAD — meet student artists, participate in fun workshops, take part in activities and take a tour around campus.

Tour the Campus: See our state-of-the-art studio spaces, check out the superb proximity of residence halls to classrooms and studios, meet internationally renowned faculty who will become your mentors.


General Tours

General campus tours are available most Wednesdays @ 4 p.m. and Fridays @ 4 p.m. Tours are led by our very own Student Ambassadors and are most suitable for students in Grade 11 and up. Parents, family, and friends are welcome to attend. Tours are approximately 90 minutes in length and focus on the spots and services of most relevance to new or incoming ACAD students.

*Please note that for the months of May, June, July + August we will only be running "Sa-Tour-days". The regular, weekly tour schedule will begin again in September.


Sat-TOUR-days are special, student-led tours of the ACAD campus, that happen on – you guessed it! – Saturdays. They’re a great way to get to know ACAD. You’ll spend about an hour and a half with us, getting an insider’s tour of our studios and facilities by current students who’ll tell you what it’s really like to go to school here. Our student ambassador will be able to answer any questions you might have about our programs and applications process. Do it!

Group + School Tours

Group or school tours are available upon request throughout the year and are most suitable for high-school students in Grade 10 and up. For more information or to book a tour time, please contact Crystal Scott, Student Recruitment Operations Coordinator at
