The Freehold Regional High School District Fine and Performing Arts Academy has provided conservatory type training since 1984 to young artists who want to combine a college preparatory academic schedule with advanced arts training in a traditional high school setting. Graduates of Fine and Performing Arts Academy have gone on to college arts programs as well as numerous liberal arts colleges and universities. Alumnae have starred in feature films, national television shows, and national and world tours of musicals. They have won Peabody and Emmy awards for video editing, received Emmy awards for acting, published books, produced independent films, and edited and written for national magazines and newspapers. Furthermore, Fine and Performing Arts Academy alumnae have also become successful in fields beyond the arts including medicine, physical and speech therapy, education, entertainment law and management, and architecture.
FPAA offers a four year program in three distinct majors: Acting, Dance, and Entertainment Technology, which includes a music production and a video production track. Students train and work in an acting studio, two dance studios, a video studio and a music production and recording studio. Students produce and perform in a number of showcases and are encouraged to participate in the numerous arts and other extracurricular programs offered at Howell High School. Auditions and interviews are the major factors in the selection of our students. Additionally, a high standard of academic achievement is expected.
