Encouraging Students'
Passion to LEARN

In order to prepare students for higher education and training, FWAFA has developed a full college preparatory program in both academics and the fine arts.

Academics

GPA

An un-weighted cumulative grade point average is calculated by averaging the grades a student earns throughout high school. GPA is reported on a 100 point scale. The class of 2014 had 58 students. The highest GPA was 99.2 and the lowest was 80.53.

Class Rank

Compared to larger public and private schools, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts’ secondary school enrollment is relatively small and homogeneous in ability. Class rank is not considered a representative measure of a student’s academic abilities and is, therefore, not computed.

  • A

    100-90

  • B

    89-80

  • C

    79-70

  • F

    0-69
