Award-winning public charter school focused on STEAM and fine arts

Harding Fine Arts Academy is a diverse, arts-integrated public charter school. Enrollment is tuition-free through a lottery system with no entrance requirements. The school offers an emphasis in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) curriculum and a robust list of fine arts and humanities courses in drama, visual arts, vocal, music, martial arts and dance. It also provides academic courses (including 14 Advanced Placement courses) in subjects such as math, English, science, social studies and foreign language. The teachers and administrators are dedicated to teaching the whole child, not just passing standardized exams.

Harding is often listed at the top of “best high school” lists, including being named one of the Top 10 Oklahoma Public High Schools by U.S. News & World Report. Interested families can complete an online application or contact the school directly for more information.

Harding Fine Arts is the best educational experience for those looking for qualified, committed, dedicated and experienced educators and staff. The balance of quality core curriculum with the excellent selection of art-based electives equals a top-notch foundation for the high school student interested in a liberal arts college degree. I would recommend this school even to those seeking a standard high school experience because of its wide variety of electives, student activities and smaller class sizes. An A++ in my grade book.
