FWCD offers an advanced curriculum, comprehensive in its emphasis of the humanities, sciences, arts, and athletics. The School values diversity in its community and encourages openness of thought and freedom of inquiry. Through its program, the School seeks to develop enthusiastic, thinking, well-rounded, and responsible citizens equipped for success in college and life.
FWCD is a founding member of the Malone Schools Online Network (MSON), which provides Upper School students with distance-learning instruction through virtual online classes networked through Stanford University. FWCD is the North Texas site for the Duke University Talent Identification (TIP) Academic Adventures Program. Fifth and sixth-graders are accepted into the Duke TIP program by scoring in the 95th percentile or higher on grade-level standardized achievement tests. Our college preparatory curriculum offers 22 Advanced Placement courses. Community Outreach and Service Learning are an integral part of our program. The History Department is home to the Center for Local Public Policy - a unique non-partisan service organization that hosts workshops, lectures and symposia on local government. Children are exposed to the Kodaly music literacy program beginning in Kindergarten.
FWCD hosts the offices and program of Breakthrough Fort Worth - an academic enrichment program designed for at-risk students in seventh and eighth grade from the Fort Worth ISD.
