 A Message from Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

TEEP’s Royal Reach Referral Program for all Extended Educational Programs is a wonderful way to celebrate current families who refer their friends and extended family for the 2017 – 2018 school year.

Here’s how it works: When a student applies and successfully enrolls with any Extended Educational Program, the referring family receives a $150 per child in all age and grade levels at TFA’s Preschool, The Classical School (TCS), and The First Hope. The applicant must name you as their referring family on the student application. Every year, close to 80% of our new families enroll at The First Academy due to a current teacher, staff member, or TFA family recommending our school. We know that a recommendation from YOU carries much more credibility than any print ad can say, and we are grateful!

Please help remind your friends to apply early and save their spot for 2017 – 2018! Together we can experience what makes our Extended Educational Programs of The First Academy so special and bring additional mission-appropriate families to share in the excitement of TFA’s Extended Educational Programs.
