From Fort Worth Academy

Founded in 1982, Fort Worth Academy is a learning environment that cultivates leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation. While the school is unique in many ways, perhaps its most distinguishing characteristic is that it is the only K-8 private school in Fort Worth. Fort Worth Academy is K-8 on purpose and by design and is proud to provide an environment where all students learn through exploration, perseverance and, ultimately, success. All classes at all grade levels are capped 15 students, and our middle school experience is unlike that of any other school. Our unique environment perfectly positions students aged 10-14 with problem-solving skills, individual confidence, and leadership capacity, while the middle school experience at any other school is a time of vulnerability and lack of confidence.
The success of our graduates speaks for itself. Nearly all--95%-100% for the past decade--attend their family’s first choice for high school.

    This school is one-of-a-kind! Small classes with personal relationships with teachers, a focus on teaching kids with interesting collaborative projects and high-level thinking instead of boring worksheets and memorization, an incredible science program, technology integrated into the curriculum, art, music, Spanish and PE for all kids, teachers and families who care about more than just grades, but that kids are happy and learn to enjoy learning. My kids absolutely love going to school because it is interesting and fun. You will be doing a disservice to your child if you don't check out Fort Worth Academy!

    The reason we chose FWA at the time when our child was accepted to all the private schools in the area was the student to teach ratio plus the school's mission to honor the learning style of each kid.

    Not all kids are created equal. Teachers focus on the development of each child based on the child's interests and pace of progress.

    FWA effectively combine technology-based and traditional teaching methods to stimulate the child's curiosity.

    We also made friends quickly with other kind, caring, resourceful parents who understand quality education is part of the whole child development. Teachers do not replace the parents to raise the kids.

    Kids are encouraged to be individual and critical thinkers. Project based learning has been effective in making learning fun. My child has excelled in every subject from writing, science to math, and continues to enjoy being there with his friends.
    We looked at a lot of options for our daughter, but after careful consideration FWA seemed the perfect fit for our family. We have never regretted that decision because our expectations have been met in so many ways. Starting with the devoted teachers, the concerned administration and the vibrant atmosphere we could not of asked for more. We’re looking forward to years ahead.
