Alumni Family Admissions

Come back. See how we’ve changed…And more importantly, how we haven’t.

The best things about your home at The First Academy remain: warm, positive relationships, invested teachers and role models, a family of faith, and a student body rich with God-given abilities.

At TFA, we want our alumni and their children back on campus. We’re better together, recognizing the loving traditions of the past and embracing the educational aspirations of the 2nd generation Royals. The Admissions application fee is waived for Alumni children. We are honored to have Royals, we already know and love, return with their own children.

Though you’ll feel the warm welcome of a familiar place, you may be surprised at how far we’ve come from the campus you remember. We’ve evolved, growing and changing with the times as part of a dynamic learning institution. From our student-led worship to our outstanding Christian faculty, you will find a school that not only values our traditions but also looks forward to what your children need for the future.

Alumni Events

Homecoming

Each October, The First Academy has a full day of activities for alumni and their families. The fun begins as the Lower, Middle and Upper School line Loop Road for the annual Homecoming parade, featuring the Homecoming Court and student organizations. The School-Wide Homecoming Pep Rally follows the parade at the Cramer Family Field House.

Then come back to campus for the Annual Homecoming Carnival, featuring delicious food trucks, family-friendly games, rides, and more. Lastly, settle in for a night of fun at the Payne Stewart Athletic Complex with the Royals Homecoming Football Game. Look for the Alumni tent, often housing an Alumni raffle! The night ends with the announcement of this year’s Homecoming King and Queen.

Veterans Day Service

We invite all alumni to bring their Veterans to our annual Veterans Day Service each November. At this special event, we honor those who have and currently are serving this great country. Check back this Fall for details.

Christmas Program

Every December, the Lower School conducts a Christmas program, which includes singing, dancing, and laughter. This is a great opportunity to bring the entire family and truly get into the Christmas spirit. Details regarding the event will be announced in November. Unable to make the event? Watch our live stream from the website.

Stay tuned for specific dates, and registration details, or email us, and we will let you know!

Alumni Giving
Alumni gifts are very important, no matter the size. When you give to The First Academy, your gifts will enable TFA to remain steadfast in our commitment to provide the many resources needed to prepare our students as the next generation of Christian leaders. Any gift makes a huge difference in the level of support we can provide to our students, academic, and athletic programs. Every gift in any amount is a testament to the generosity of our enthusiastic alumni.
