It is the policy of Frank Sinatra School of the Arts (FSSA) High School that every student receives the most challenging academic and arts program. We offer every student the opportunity to take four years of science and math, in addition to four years of English and social studies. The studio arts program provides students an intensive sequential study of an art form that includes the possibility to study the history, cultural significance and aesthetics of their selected art form. Students will be introduced to all of the disciplines offered at FSSA through a specially designed curriculum enabling students to make connections with all art forms and to foster a true artistic community.
