The typical student day at the Alabama School of Fine Arts is in fact two days in one. Each student benefits from at least three hours of instruction in a chosen specialty—Creative Writing, Dance, Mathematics and Science, Music, Theatre Arts or Visual Arts—while completing core academic courses as required to earn a state of Alabama high school diploma. To remain in good standing, students maintain an “80” average in specialty course work and a “70” average in core academic studies
Ordinarily, students shall be enrolled in the school at least throughout the junior and senior years to satisfy minimum instructional requirements for graduation.
Among the many learning resources serving students are a caring faculty, a facility designed to meet many specialized needs, advanced information technology and the school’s location in downtown Birmingham with easy access to the Birmingham Public Library, Birmingham Art Museum, McWane Science Center and Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.
