FORT WORTH, TX, September 23, 2021 – We are proud to announce that Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts (FWAFA) has received’s inaugural College Success Award – Gold!

As a recipient of the College Success Award in 2019, 2020, and 2021, our school received the first-ever College Success Award – Gold distinction for our multiyear track record of preparing students to enroll and succeed in college. FWAFA is among 1,770 high schools in 26 states to receive the Gold Award.

Now in its fourth year, the College Success Award program evaluates public schools based on data that show how well our school prepares students to succeed after graduation, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist into their second year.

We applaud the hard work of the entire FWAFA community — including students, parents, teachers, and others that aspire to help our students succeed in college and beyond. We invite you to join in the celebration of our College Success Award – Gold!
