About this school

Harding Fine Arts Academy was founded in 2005 by visionary community leaders who believed a truly transformative education should draw from the full breadth of human experience. HFAA engages students through a comprehensive liberal arts education that gives the same footing to the arts as it does to academics, with high expectations for both. It is through this lens that founders focused on a mission to “prepare students for college in an academically challenging, arts-integrated environment.”
