Mission Statement:

Mission
We are people who care deeply about the education and well being of the students of the High School of Art & Design​​.​ FAD Board members and supporters believe that it is every citizen's responsibility to do all she or he can do to help every young person achieve his or her potential, not only for the student's welfare, but for the welfare of our society.​
FAD in Action
Tutoring: FAD volunteers tutor students one-on-one during their lunch hour(s) at the FAD Learning Center, a dedicated facility at the school. A&D students are strong in the arts but many need help in academic subjects (e.g. math, history, science).
Higher Education: FAD funds the college application fees for over 100 students in need each year. Your $65 donation can help a deserving student apply to CUNY schools!
Culture: FAD subsidizes and chaperones students on educational visits to NYC’s renowned institutions and studios (e.g. MOMA, the NY Philharmonic, the Met etc.).
Internships: FAD sponsors internships for students at some of New York’s leading art and architecture firms. You’ll even find our interns in showrooms in the D&D Building!
Awards, Scholarships: FAD presents awards and scholarships based on merit and need
Unbudgeted Programs: FAD provides grants for unbudgeted extracurricular activities, concerts, equipment, exhibitions and drama productions. FAD has contributed funding for everything from live models for the annual Draw-a-Thons, to an industrial sewing machine for the fashion department!
