What makes Harding Fine Arts Academy Unique?

Students with an interest in the arts do not have to audition for entrance into our program. We take an interest in the arts and turn the interest into skill. However, we do occasionally test or audition for placement in more advance classes.

Creative students find their niche at HFAA. Here the arts are celebrated, and the artist is seen as the norm. Students often find a new interest and challenge in academics through our arts-integrated approach that was not available to them in other educational venues.

Our creative scheduling affords our students the opportunity to build their arts and academic awareness and provides ample opportunity for practice and performance. Our small supportive atmosphere helps each student achieve success academically and artistically.

Let us answer any questions you may have.

Contact us directly by email, phone or visiting our offices. We look forward to meeting you!

Lottery and Wait List Acceptance Information for those Applying for 9th Grade

2017 - 2018 Admissions Application

Applications for the 2018 - 2019 Academic Year will be available on this web page beginning October 2nd.

Important: The 9th grade lottery has already taken place. Students who were accepted and those on the wait list were notified. We are still accepting applications for the 2017 - 2018 academic year, but new students with completed applications, would go on our wait list.


10th, 11th & 12th Grade Transfer Students

Typically all of our classes are full and we typically have a wait list for all grades. An application on file submitted by a Transfer Student does not guarantee admittance.

Space for students transferring to HFAA is limited. After eligible returning students (10th, 11th & 12th) are admitted and their class schedules are complete, additional student enrollment is based on the availability of a students’ required/desired class(es). (It is usually the summer before the school year before we can determine availability of new transfer students.) Space must be available without over-populating a class(es) before a student will be given the opportunity to enroll. Otherwise, we will move to the next student on the wait list. We do this in an effort to allow additional students to enroll whenever possible. Determination of availability is determined the summer before the school year is to begin.
