The F.A.D.E. program is unique to Bishop McNamara High School Community. This program serves to refine students' talent and skill, cultivate a community of respect, appreciation, and understanding of the arts, and acknowledge students' dedication to the Fine Arts throughout their high school career.
Students have the opportunity to apply for this program at the start of their sophomore year.
Fine Arts course work taken during a student's freshman year, prior to the FADE application year, can count towards the requirements.
Students who graduate with the Fine Arts Diploma Endorsement receive a notation on their transcripts and a special honor certificate at the senior convocation and honors cords at graduation.
The FADE Program requires specific fine arts coursework as well as attendance and participation with school and community performances and art exhibits. The students also attend the BMHS Guest Artist Series or Colloquia. During their senior year, they will share their individual talents with each other and the younger members of the FADE Program at the FADE Senior Showcase.
Over their three years enrolled in the program, the students take time to meet artists of all backgrounds, experience performances and exhibits of all genres, and learn from their teachers at BMHS and one another, therefore broadening their fine arts experience.
