Our Mission Statement
Helping Adolescents Restore Balance Order & Respect
We create balance in our lives when we achieve an equal condition of emotional, spiritual, and mental stability. FHA assists students in cultivating essential qualities that will help them become balanced young people. These qualities of academic, spiritual, physical, and emotional stability strengthen students as they strive to know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses in behavior, ability, and motivation.
The characteristics which trigger this balance and that we cultivate at FHA are belonging, independence, mastery, and generosity.
Florida’s school choice programs ensure that no child will be left behind by allowing parents to choose the best educational setting—public or private—for their child. The McKay Scholarships provided over 22,000 Florida students with special needs the opportunity to attend a participating private school during the 2010-11 school year.
Step Up For Students
Seven Students from the FHA Fashion Class received the surprise of their life when Oprah Winfrey called in a favor to Fashion MOGUL Jessica Simpson. Jessica surprised them at the school with a special invitation to Chicago to be on the Oprah Winfrey Show along with Dresses & Accessories from her collection.
Read the show details here.
On behalf of all us at FHA and especially Jakina, Shanae, Alex, Eliza, Bailey, Isabel, & Paris – we would like to thank YOU Jessica Simpson, Oprah Winfrey, & the DOVE Corporation for making so many of our dreams become a reality!
Special Thank You to Producer Alex Castro.
