San Antonio Art & Design High School Offers Online Enrollment Information Sessions
Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design’s approach to Empowering Education
SAN ANTONIO, JUNE: As the 2020-2021 school year approaches, Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design is hosting online information sessions for families looking for an award-winning college-preparatory high school. While focused on offering a world-class education for high school students with an interest in art and design, school leaders will also share additional important aspects of the overall student experience that are intentional to the design of the tuition-free school and achievement of ambitious academic and personal outcomes.
After recently celebrating the school’s 9th graduating class – in which 100% of HFA Seniors graduated on time – and hosting an incredible Virtual Art Show featuring creative and original masterpieces made by students and judged by HFA alum Carlos Moreno, this San Antonio charter school is not letting the pandemic derail its mission to provide an empowering education or its unwavering commitment to nurturing innovative, creative and resourceful learners. The school’s alternate learning plan during the recently-ended school year reflected an emphasis on continuity, social-emotional support and a positive learning path for each of its students.
Families interested in learning more about the school and the meaningful learning opportunities it provides are encouraged to register for an upcoming free online information session via Eventbrite. During each session school leaders, will share the history of the school and its unique partnership with UTSA, discuss student curriculum, break down the day-to-day learning environment, provide insight on unique academic program opportunities such as the school’s Senior Mastery Process (career exploration with a meaningful internship), and welcome participant questions.
These convenient sessions will be held throughout the summer, every other Thursday beginning July 2nd. Opportunities for early registration are set for June 24th and July 15th, while August 12th will be the final day to register a student for the coming academic year. There are a limited number of open spots, so families are encouraged to act now.
Looking forward, HFA will host a special information session, featuring a hands-on art workshop. For this unique event, attendees can expect to learn about the school, all while participating in a fun and interactive tutorial. More information about the school’s upcoming information sessions and events can be found on its website, social media and Eventbrite.
