We empower young people...
to think critically, lead with empathy, and collaborate effectively, to become the innovators and problem solvers of tomorrow. We cultivate our students to become self-aware, self-driven, courageous, confident, and creative Trailblazers.
Innovation, curiosity, and creativity are key components of continual growth. Children have a natural curiosity about the world around them which is developed through opportunities to question and challenge the status quo. Our innovative approach empowers children to be courageous and develop their own solutions to the problems and challenges they uncover.
Excellence is achieved when growth opportunities are met with resilience and grit. High expectations within an environment of integrity and respect inspire children to achieve their personal best. Learning from mistakes and embracing challenges cultivates an environment of excellence.
Collaboration is the ability to work together, share ideas, communicate effectively, and respect differences. Inclusivity and empathy form the foundation of a collaborative environment. The best outcomes are driven by diversity of opinions, talents, and ideas.
Your Child Deserves the Best...
At Fort Worth Academy, we strongly believe the most critical foundations are established during the elementary and middle school years. Research has shown that kindergarten at a private school has benefits for students that last a lifetime. That's why we say that the best education begins here! Year after year, FWA graduates are accepted to their first choice high school.
Opportunities Abound from the Start
Small class sizes (with a maximum of 15 students per class) allow students to develop their strengths early. Students also have numerous leadership opportunities, developing life-long confidence and self-esteem. Students succeed as they confidently lead themselves and others through real-life learning experiences and meaningful collaboration.
Valuable Relationships Are Built Early
The environment at Fort Worth Academy fosters healthy relationships. Not only is there a strong social emotional learning emphasis, there are also cross-grade mentorships. As a result, young students feel comfortable and at home, and middle schoolers view themselves as leaders.
K to 8 on Purpose and By Design
Unlike other schools, the FWA middle school program is not an afterthought, wedged between lower school and high school. Instead, our environment is intentionally structured to prepare our students using the most advanced, challenging, and creative learning experiences at each grade--and our students enjoy learning, discovering, and exploring their world. Together with their parents, our eighth graders select a high school based on the strengths and interests they have developed in their nine years at FWA. Fort Worth Academy students are consistently recruited by premier high schools in our area, and year after year graduates are accepted to their families' high school of choice.
Philosophy of Belonging
The Fort Worth Academy community values diversity and belonging as an integral part of the learning experience. Our collective individual differences bring us together, broaden our perspective, shape our character, feed our compassion, and make us stronger. Thus, we seek to understand and respect identities and differences and value the connections we all share within our community of belonging.
Our commitment to supporting diversity, inclusion, and belonging is foundational. It is approached through an ongoing and evolving process that involves the entire school community and is demonstrated through school curriculum, activities, events, and speakers. We prepare students to excel in an increasingly diverse society by providing learning opportunities about people, places, and cultures in ways that are empathetic, innovative, and enlightening. Our faculty and staff, model and teach acceptance, understanding, caring, and respect with the aim of creating a sense of belonging among every member of our community.
