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.
