VCA is Vancouver Island's largest and oldest school of art, offering classes in 95 different subjects. It is the only college in Victoria that offers diploma courses in both Fine Arts and Applied Arts. As a privately-funded social enterprise, VCA is an independent creative community dedicated to quality and nimbleness. Founded by notable artists (many with Canadian Royal Academy distinction), VCA has deliberately maintained its special niche as a small but innovative education provider in the creative arts. It is the only independent Fine and Applied Arts College on Vancouver Island that has the British Columbia ministry's designation of "Education Quality Assurance" – a necessary qualification to accept international students.
