Their Senior year may have taken an unexpected turn when students returned to class after Spring Break virtually, but that did not stop The First Academy’s Class of 2020 from excelling academically, artistically, spiritually, and athletically as they prepare to graduate and begin their futures at the collegiate level.

This graduating class of students features an award-winning, high-achieving, creative and adaptive group of students who royally represent TFA. Some of their honors include:

  • 24 13-Year Seniors
  • 7.5+ Million in College Scholarship Offers
  • 33 AP Scholars
  • 13,100+ Community Service Hours
  • 130+ College and University acceptances
  • 17 College-Signed Athletes
  • 50 Royal Scholars
  • 20 Humanities Scholars
  • 19 Senior Leaders Overseeing 8 Student Leadership Committees

From State Championships on the golf course to award-winning ceramics, the Class of 2020 is well celebrated. Those celebrations continued on the Seniors’ last day of school with a parade through campus, socially distanced, but full of love and joy from their Lower School teachers to their coaches.
