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.
Formerly known as Arts Week, all programming for Middle School students during the October and February breaks is now under the Arts and Cultural Enrichment Programs (ACE) title. This October 21st-24th's ACE week will highlight animation, time-based arts, cooking, and a variety of athletics workshops.
Please note that release of liability from parents and legal guardians is required for student participation in some ACE Week workshops. Only custodial parents may register their children for activities that require release of liability.
