TSFA is fulfilling  this need through the development in 2004, of the Texas High School Certification program. This certification program allows school districts to provide more value to their diploma and helps provide young, enthusiastic floral designers to meet the retail florist needs!

Requirements for the certification are enrollment and completion of the year long Texas Education Agency approved floral design curriculum and passing the TSFA Knowledge Based written exam and the design of two floral  designs  in a timed setting.
