Congratulations to junior Maddie Cunnigham and sophomore Jaden Holtschlag for being accepted to the Governor's School of the Arts, a four-week long summer program for high school students gifted in music, visual art, theatre, dance, and filmmaking. They were two of 230 students accepted from the 1400 applicants.
At FRA, the arts are a priority, and our arts offerings complement our intellectual, athletics, and spiritual pursuits, lending a creative outlet to let students' minds solve problems in unexpected new ways.
Our students are encouraged to explore various forms of art as they progress through middle and upper school, and many of our graduates are pursuing their artistic passions in college and beyond.
Last month, seniors Katherine Holman and Ansley Moore attended the National Unified Auditions in New York. More than 25 top universities from all over the nation, as well as some international universities, were at these auditions, where students auditioned for different positions in the theatre department.

The FRA Fine and Performing Arts Department is excited to announce additional growth in its dance program as it expands into the lower school, threading through all divisions on campus.
A special Thank you to Friends of the Arts for sponsoring our Frankie Awards and our Celebration on May 17th to honor senior Art Students who will be attending Universities in the fall to study the arts.
