What is Future School?

Future School of Fort Smith is a tuition-free, public charter high school centered on a personalized approach to learning via student-designed internships, personalized learning plans and an advisor for each student. We serve 10-12th grade students, as well as the needs of their families and community, with enrollment beginning in August 2016. Our student-centered model engages students from all backgrounds. We sincerely believe in the potential for each student to identify interests, cultivate in-demand skills and graduate ready for the world through partnerships with local K-12, higher education and business/community organizations.
