Organization Description

Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design (HFA: ASAD) is an arts-based charter high school committed to preparing every student academically for college success. Our learning community instills professional expectations, embraces community connections, and values art, design, and creativity as essential to our high school's college-bound culture. HFA: ASAD is built on the idea that learning needs to be hands-on, connected to the real world, and should develop not only students' academic knowledge and skills, but also their potential as creative thinkers and innovative problem solvers. As a public charter school, all enrolled students attend HFA: ASAD tuition-free. For more information, please visit: http://asad.hfli.org/
