The school, located in Kent, is co‐managed by Federal Way Public Schools and TAF, a nonprofit. Members of TAF Academy’s first graduating class (2012) went on to some of the world’s top STEM university programs. The Bethaday Community Learning Space, where the Fair will be held, opened in fall 2012.
