About the School

Welcome to the Story Arts Centre

The Story Arts Centre — home to Centennial College's School of Communications, Media, Arts and Design — opened in the fall of 1994 as a campus dedicated to digital media and is home to nearly 1,600 full-time students enrolled in communications, media, art, design, advertising, public relations, journalism, integrated media, culture, entertainment, and performing arts programs.

Located close to downtown Toronto, just minutes from Pape Subway Station, the Story Arts Centre sits at the heart of Toronto's media, design, culture and arts hubs. The campus is a meticulously restored, 104,000-square-foot modernist masterpiece that serves as a dramatic backdrop for students to learn and tell their stories.

The campus has a storied past. It was originally built as the Toronto Teachers College and achieved worldwide fame as the setting for Degrassi High, one of Canada's longest running and most successful television productions, which was filmed on location from 1989 to 1991.

The Story Arts Centre features

  • 16,500-square-foot television studio

  • Photography studio and digital imaging labs
  • Library and digital resource centre
  • State-of-the-art newsroom with live broadcast capabilities
