New Parent & Family Events

Details & Donuts

You are invited to join an Admissions team member for Details & Donuts. This is a time for new parents to ask questions and receive information regarding your family’s transition to The First Academy. In order to meet the scheduling needs of new families, we offer both on-campus and virtual sessions. We look forward to providing a sweet treat and a time for casual conversation to help ensure a strong start at The First Academy. Topics include, but are not limited to, How to Get Connected, Academics, Student Schedules, Spiritual Formation, Athletics, Fine Arts, and much more.
