Our Upper and Middle School Visual Art students’ hard work earned them national recognization this year. Several students’ 2D and 3D artwork were submitted for The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) 2020-21 Art Festival, earning top honors.

Additionally, Class of 2021 graduates Gabby Torres and Benny Englund both have won the prestigious Applause Award! Both graduates had the opportunity to perform with students from across Central Florida at the Dr. Phillips Center for the awards ceremony. Gabby Torres and Kinsey Campbell were also both announced as two of the few Applause Awards Scholarship Recipients. What amazing accolades for these students and for TFA!

Congratulations Dr. Holter! 

Dr. Holter has completed the ACT suite of certifications! She is one of only five or six educators in the country who have been certified in all subject areas. Dr. Holter's goal is to not only improve her own test-prep course but to also find ways to incorporate strategies into TFA's curriculum beginning in Middle School to help students build the skills they need for standardized testing. 

"ACT Certified Educator™ is a groundbreaking credentialing program designed for educators and school systems seeking professional development and certification from a trusted and authoritative source."
