  • Accommodation Statement

    ASFA was created by the State to provide a more challenging education for impassioned, talented students in Creative Writing, Dance, Math & Science, Music, Theatre Arts, and Visual Arts. Consistent with its mission, only those students will be admitted to ASFA and allowed to remain who are able to meet the demands of a rigorous curriculum. Applicants with existing Individualized Education Plans (IEP) are obliged to inform ASFA administration during the application period and to provide a copy or authorization for release of the applicant’s most recent IEP and any related records deemed necessary by ASFA. If a qualifying disabling condition is substantiated before or after enrollment, a committee appointed by the President will determine if the school can reasonably accommodate the student’s needs or if these needs will be better accommodated in a different educational environment.
