Minimum Requirements (Updated March 2017)

I understand that FAFA is a four year program of study. It will include the state minimum requirements as well as requirements in your field of study. I also understand that I must complete the state requirements in my academic areas as well as health and physical education. Admission to the Florence Academy of Fine Arts will be dependent upon my meeting all of the requirements listed. I understand that failure to complete the requirements of my preferred field of study will negate my ability to receive a Fine Arts Designation.

I understand that I am expected to uphold the FCS Code of Conduct, adhere to the FCS attendance policy and maintain the rules as stated. If I fail to meet these expectations, I may be dismissed from the program.

  1. Attendance is required for all Academy classes in which the student is enrolled.
     
  2. Excellent attendance and citizenship must be maintained.
     
  3. A 3.0 GPA in Academy courses and a 2.0 GPA in all other subjects is required of all FAFA students. They also must be on track to graduate.
     
  4. Students must complete all assignments on time and to the standards set for that class.
     
  5. Self-discipline must be maintained if the student is to succeed. The amount of success by a student in FAFA is dependent upon the amount of work and their ability to balance FAFA, school and home.
