The First Academy offers an expanded after school program to include performing and fine arts classes as well as enrichment classes for students. The Royal Academy of Arts and Enrichment (RAAE) is an extra-curricular program. This program is implemented to meet the requests of families and to expand offerings and participation in the Fine Arts program and other areas of enrichment.
The Royal Academy of Arts and Enrichment classes are offered after school on a semester basis (generally 10-12 weeks or 8 months) with registration and course fees. Each course will include weekly classes (1 day per week) and will be approximately one hour in length, beginning after the school day ends. A course fee is required for any student enrolled in a class and generally covers all supplies and materials. Classes begin within the first weeks of each semester.
The courses offered are dependent on the availability of an instructor. We continually seek qualified instructors to teach classes, which may include TFA teachers, parents, or other qualified persons. If you have questions regarding the program or are interested in teaching a course next semester, or would like to recommend an instructor, please contact: Debi Savage, Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a connection between involvement in arts courses and higher academic achievement. These finding are consistent with decades of research revealing that studying music and other arts disciplines improves cognitive abilities that are used in other academic areas such as mathematics, reading, and science.
The Royal Academy of the Arts and Enrichment is excited to put on the annual RAAE Recital/Showcase. This event will highlight performing groups of the Royal Academy of Arts and Enrichment classes. The afternoon will feature dance, an acting presentation and lots of music.
The course fee must be paid with each registration. The student will receive a full refund less expenses incurred (processing fee) if withdrawing from a program offering before Friday, Aug. 25, 2017. No refunds will be made after this date. If a student is asked to leave the course for disciplinary reasons no refund will be permitted.
The First Academy reserves the right to cancel any program for which there is insufficient enrollment. The designated participation maximum is listed under the course description. All fees will be refunded in the event that the course minimum is not met. This application is made with the understanding that The First Academy reserves the right to request withdrawal of any student whose conduct, influence, attendance, or progress is regarded as undesirable or unsatisfactory, or who fails to conform to rules and regulations. No refund will be made to any student who withdraws or is dismissed from the Royal Academy of the Arts after the program has begun.
The dress code for the Royal Academy of Arts and Enrichment is TFA school uniform unless instructed otherwise.
