Visit Alabama School of Fine Arts

  • We highly encourage all prospective students and their families to visit ASFA's campus. Meeting and interacting with students, faculty, and staff will give you a true feeling of the dynamic and welcoming culture of ASFA. This year we have multiple ways to visit ASFA in person and virtually. For information on virtual/digital visits and information sessions, go to our Virtual Visits page.

    Some of our in-person opportunities include:

    Spend a Day at ASFA is a deep dive into the life of an ASFA student.  You will be paired with an ASFA student host in your department and of a similar grade to you for the day. As you follow their schedule for the day, you will get to go to classes with them while meeting our academic and specialty teachers and lots of ASFA students. You'll get to see what a day at ASFA is like, from the friendly student body to our top-tier teachers to a delicious meal in our cafeteria. Contact Jaronda Little with any questions. Click here to sign up to Spend a Day at ASFA. Shadowing is available October - April.
