Academy of Fine Arts

The Academy of Fine Arts at Northwest High School offers well-rounded art and music programs that serve as excellent preparation for either a career or college level education in art or music. Our vision is for each student to have the opportunity to express his or herself with passion and creativity in art and music at the highest standard of craftsmanship, to make original art - thoughtfully considered and with personal meaning, and to make exceptional music - expressively performed both individually and in ensembles.
