Inclement Weather

In case of inclement weather, check our homepage or call the AFTA office at 828.254.7841. Updates are also posted on Facebook and Instagram.

The Academy for the Arts follows the inclement weather policy of First Baptist Church of Asheville (not necessarily the school systems). When bad weather develops during the day, AFTA reserves the right to cancel classes for the remainder of the day. Please call the AFTA office for cancellation notices or to determine whether a decision to close the building was made during the day.

In the event we need to close the building due to weather-related issues, students will have a “Virtual Day.” For those for whom virtual lessons are not possible, we will make those lessons up in person as soon as it is convenient for both teacher and student.
