Message from Mrs. Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

Hope. What does this word mean to you? Romans 12:12 shares with us ‘Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.’ ‘Joyful in hope’ is one of my favorite verses. It focuses the future to a place of joy. This is the time of year when we prepare for the future. Our plans for next year are taking form as TFA’s Preschool, TCS, and The First Hope continue to grow and blossom. We are steadily plotting and planning to always be the best for our students and families. And we do this planning with joyful hope.

I know it is hard to believe but enrollment for your child’s KPrep class for next year has already begun.  To make the process as seamless as possible, please check out the website link which will take you directly to TFA’s Admission page.  From there you will be able to begin the online admission’s process to complete the application for your child to apply for KPrep at The First Academy.  I encourage you to begin this process right away as space is limited for the KPrep program.
