Most of us know what The First Academy is about. It is about life-changing spiritual formation, it is about excellence in teaching and learning, it is about a true partnership between the church, the home, and the school. TFA is about all of these things, and so much more. We are a school family full of dynamic learners, educators, staff members, and friends. I always look forward to our Open House events because we get to share why we are so special in a way that can only be seen when you step foot on campus.
This Sunday, January 28th, we are hosting our second Open House of the school year from 2:00-4:00pm. We are so excited to provide an opportunity for prospective families to meet current students, parents, teachers, and leadership. The families will be welcomed in the Cramer Family Field House and will then be taken on a personal tour of campus. During the tour, prospective families will have the opportunity to talk with our distinguished faculty as well as with coaches, staff, and artists in our award-winning athletic and fine arts departments.
A new feature at Open House this Sunday is a spotlight on our Fine Arts students, who will be performing in the Black Box Theatre for families to view as they tour. As the families walk the halls they may also notice faculty members with a blue ribbon attached to their apparel. We are so proud of these men and women as they are alumni who have come back to teach at TFA and impact our future Christian leaders!
If you are a current family and have another child who is interested in applying to The First Academy, please feel free to RSVP and join us for the event.
I would love for you to ‘share the good news’ and invite friends who are interested in becoming a part of the TFA family to this fantastic event. You are welcome to share by using one of our Open House social media links (below) or by personally inviting friends, families, or neighbors to Open House.
