THANK YOU!!! to all Lamar Staff, parents and community supporters for the 4 years of hard work, meetings, Board Meetings, and long hours that made the Lamar Middle School Fine Arts Academy vision a REALITY! This wouldn't have been possible without you and we appreciate you! Lamar Fine Arts Academy (Click here for more information on LFAA!) (en Espanol) is aligning its curriculum closely with McCallum High School and McCallum Fine Arts Academy. For the 2012-2013 school year, we have added Dance and Piano programs.
The FAA builds upon the already outstanding arts program present at Lamar. Our award-winning Bands, Choirs, Orchestras, Classical Guitar Ensemble, Theatre Troup, and Visual Arts programs are excited and ready for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
Lamar provides a program for Lamar students to pursue an accelerated arts curriculum in middle school. By creating a middle school with a fine arts focus for Austin, the Academy will fill an important role in our city. The FAA will feature partnerships with arts organizations and artists drawn from the internationally recognized Austin arts community, McCallum High School, and the University of Texas at Austin.
