Exclusive Opportunity for TFA Families

Written by: Dr. Steve Whitaker, Head of School


The First Academy is a true blessing for families and students. Therefore, we want to ensure that all current families, faculty, and staff have the opportunity to “Pre-Apply” for the 2016-2017 school year as most of our grade levels are at maximum capacity.

This is not re-enrollment. Our Admissions Department is offering an exclusive early opportunity for current families to apply for siblings who do not attend TFA. All current families’ applications will have precedence over community applications through December. You can now have your child register for screening and/or testing prior to the community applications being reviewed.

Please help us communicate with your close friends that The First Academy is a possible school choice for their child. Invite them to our Open House events, personal tours, and shadow day program. Let them know they should apply before the Christmas holiday season at

Screenings for K4, TK, and Kindergarten have started in November and will continue through December. Once your child has applied and submitted the required forms, they are eligible to sign up for screening! This means if you have friends and family that you’d like to come to TFA with your child(ren), please encourage them to start the process now. They can apply, submit their forms, go on a tour, shadow the school (2nd – 12th grades), and/or come to our next Open House on Sunday, January 10.

Every year, more than 80% of our new families enroll at The First Academy due to a TFA family recommendation. We know that a recommendation from YOU carries much more credibility than any advertisement!

Together we can share what makes TFA so special and bring additional mission-appropriate families to experience the excitement of our Christ-centered college preparatory education!
