Welcome to the Federal Way Public Academy Website, Federal Way Public Academy (FWPA) is a school of choice, in the Federal Way School District.
FWPA focuses on a traditional college preparatory curriculum, for grades six through ten. The curriculum is challenging, rigorous and intellectually relevant. The goal of FWPA is to prepare students to be successful in their post high school education and careers. The school is open to all students in the Federal Way School District, and admittance is by lottery.
The curriculum and programs at FWPA are aligned with the District’s strategic plan. The two focus areas at FWPA are Goal 2 – Whole Child Thriving, Confident, Responsible Individuals and Goal 5 – Persistence to Graduation: High School Graduation through Successful Transitions. For goal two, FWPA is committed to embracing, teaching, and celebrating the cultures of our students, community and nation as a whole. This year you will see an emphasis placed on increasing the teaching of Spanish, as the school aims to become truly multi-lingual, and a renewed emphasis on making our family support group truly representative of our school community. For goal five, FWPA aims to prepare all its students’ with the academic and personal qualities, which they will need to transition to the next educational level and beyond. In addition to having every student meet or exceed all the educational requirements, FWPA will put more emphasis on educating their students on the opportunities that await them after they depart FWPA.
