HFLI's Innovation Springboard Jump Start is a fun and engaging 2-day experience for all San Antonio-area students ages 14-19. Are you a recent Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design graduate? You can participate, too!
Innovation Springboard Jump Start takes Design Thinking to a new and exciting level. Design Thinking is a creative problem-solving approach that enables young people to build skills for innovating, including the ability to think creatively, work collaboratively with others, and implement innovations. You will have authentic, hands-on experiences that will help you develop your creative ideas and show you how you can use them to bring about change. Then, you will learn about how entrepreneurship skills can turn these ideas and prototypes into a reality with the help of real entrepreneurs and mentors.
Innovation Springboard Jump Start will be held on August 20 and 21 from 8:30am-5:30pm each day at Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design. A celebratory movie night with a screening of "Meet the Robinsons" will be held on August 21st and is free to all registered participants.
The registration cost of this workshop is $10, which will be refunded to you upon completion of the workshop on August 21. We will provide all materials, meals and snacks throughout the workshop, as well.
PLEASE NOTE: Additional permission forms will be required once registration is completed.
We are pleased to share the newly-released State of Texas 2013-14 School Report Card for Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design, which shows that our school received a high rating: Met Standard. The report card and our letter to families are available for download below. Our entire school community -- students, parents, teachers, staff and community partners -- can be proud of the strong support network we’ve built to help our students achieve at a level that exceeds the target scores for all three indexes on which we were measured. We hold ourselves to high expectations in our service to students and are committed to continuing to strengthen our academic, artistic and social/emotional programs. If you have any questions about the report card, please contact Ms. Sanchez.

Families of Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design:
I am writing to you to share news of a change in our school leadership for the upcoming school year. Mr. Boggs is stepping down as principal of Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design. His last day with us is May 12, 2014. We thank Mr. Boggs for his work and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Steps are being developed to identify a new principal, and we will share information when it becomes available.
Everyone at HFA: Alameda School remains focused on preparing our students for college and careers with a rigorous academic program that is strengthened through developing skills and talents in art and design. That promise to you and your student is at the center of our work every day and will continue to guide our efforts throughout the remainder of this school year and into the years to come. We are inspired by the abilities of our students and passionate about preparing them to seize life-changing opportunities.
There are many important events and exciting milestones to look forward to during the remainder of this school year, including:
