Apply To FWAFA

FWAFA's Back to School Plan

The TCAA Board voted on a Waiver for a Four Week Extension for FWAFA at the August 25th TCAA Board Meeting. This was submitted to TEA to Start In-School Learning on October 13, 2020.
FWAFA has plans in place to phase in groups of students over a three week period to transition from our 100% At-Home Learning Plan to In-School Learning and practice the TCAA Back-To-School Health processes and procedures that are being put in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Specific plans were outlined in the Principal Newsletter HERE.
Unless we are required to close school by the Texas Education Agency, TCAA schools will offer both In-School and At-Home Learning models for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

The Application Process


Explore the Process

It’s never too early to start preparing. The first step is getting familiar with the application process. Explore the following documents and remember to contact us if you have any questions. These documents are for reference only and may change from year to year.


Apply for Admission

Students from accepted ISDs may gain admission to FWAFA by completing an application and auditioning. FWAFA accepts new students at every grade level starting in 3rd grade- but please keep in mind that acceptance is limited due to our commitment to small class sizes.

Students and parents may submit applications for the 2021-2022 school year. Students will then be assigned to their auditions. 


Audition to Join Us

All students may audition in choir, dance, theater or visual art. Elementary and Middle School students have the option to audition in two areas. 

All auditions will currently take place online. Applicants will be scored on a rubric for their chosen artistic disciplines, then ranked according to grade level to determine acceptance or placement on the wait lists. Students must meet a minimum required score for acceptance. Students will not receive a copy of their completed rubric or score.
