My TFA experience has been life changing. I was introduced to a place where teachers continually mentor their students, push them to success, and help them in their spiritual walk. I’m involved in fine arts, and the choir teacher, theater director, and band director are the DREAM TEAM! I have been truly blessed in my time at TFA by people who have poured into me and the experiences I have had the honor to be a part of.”

The mission of the Fine Arts Network (FAN) is to support our Arts departments and endeavor to help them flourish. FAN exists to encourage our Fine Arts teachers as they train students to use their God-given gifts and talents in a world-impacting and God-glorifying way.

Membership in the Fine Arts Network also helps by supplying funds for items that may not be part of the general budget like state participation expenses, classroom equipment, instruments, awards, etc.

Families can support FAN by purchasing season tickets (includes reserved seating for all Theatre performances in upper, middle and lower school, as well as the Spring Concert and the Christmas Program.  Additional reserved seating opportunities will be announced as events are scheduled).    You can also support FAN by making a direct donation to an individual department (see the link below) that is tax deductible as well as available for any corporate matching funds.

Your support of FAN allows this work to continue and helps make the dreams of our aspiring artists, actors, musicians, and producers come true.
