A hallmark feature of Fortis is its culinary arts program.
In 2019-2020 students also participate in an equine therapy program. An overarching philosophy at Fortis is to move from a mentality of punishing students to helping them.
"Peer pressure is a powerful force, so we combine counseling and coaching centers into the traditional school day to promote continued sobriety."
- HCDE Superintendent James Colbert Jr., avid supporter of Fortis Academy.
