Mission and Vision
Welcome to the Fashion Art and Design Academy of the Upper Campus of Oakland Technical High School, also known as FADA!
Our mission is to have a small, safe, engaging, and diverse collaborative learning community for all students. Through real-world work-based learning experiences, industry partnerships, and education in a range of creative disciplines, FADA students will be empowered to discover and begin a post-secondary path in the fields of fashion, art and design. Through the creative process, students will be encouraged and challenged to break outside the box of expectation in order to envision and create change within themselves, the community, and society at large.
Our vision of a FADA graduate is a self-directed, creative, critical-thinker and life-long learner. They will have a strong foundation of 21st century skills and technologies, integrated with an academic core in a variety of methods of visual communication. They will have discovered and begun to gain real-world experience in a post-secondary path in the fields of fashion, art, and design.
