The strengths at Fordham High School for the Arts lie in its mission to create a fine and performing arts program in the Bronx. A partnership with practicing artists affords students the opportunity to explore and develop their talents in various mediums of artistic expression.

A credit intervention program meets after school, Monday through Thursday and Saturdays. We follow Department of Education Guidelines for promotion and prepare our students to be enrolled in summer school if the need arises. In this way, we hope to keep all students working towards diploma requirements in conjunction with their respective cohorts.
