Arts and Cultural Enrichment Weeks

Week-long breaks (one in October and one in February) when students can participate in a variety of on-campus, arts-focused activities. 

FAIS operates on an academic calendar that is broken up by five 7 to 8-week periods with breaks for Winter Break, Spring Break, and Arts and Cultural Enrichment Weeks. School is not in session during Arts and Cultural Enrichment Weeks, and an alternate program is provided for students who wish to participate. 

Lower School

Lower School students participate in theme-based activities with a strong emphasis on the arts that often involve outside instructors.

Middle School

Middle School students participate in different workshops centered around different forms of visual art.
