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

A school family is built upon community, partnership, and trust. Community with one another in sharing time of traditions and celebrations together. A partnership of serving in His name and growing our students spiritually and academically. Trust in the leadership, teachers, and staff that we are raising your Royals, big and small, as our own children. Re-enrollment is a time when our school family is forged for the next school year. It is our prayer that you choose to return to our school family, as we would humbly love to continue serving your children and family.

Upcoming Events

Re-Enrollment is Opening THIS MONDAY!

Re-Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year will be kicking off Monday, January 9th.  During the first week (Monday, January 9th-Friday, January 13th), you will be able to re-enroll and secure your space for the 2017 school year at a discounted rate of $100.  We will be sending email communication soon on how to re-enroll.  So excited to see how God will continue to bless our amazing preschool!

3’s (Miss Kim, Miss Ebony and Miss Melanie’s Class):

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 seemless 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.

We are excited to share with you that we already have 11 friends who have been accepted for next year!

Please feel free to contact Lyn Hawkins, TFA Admissions with any questions (407) 206-8602.  Please let me know how I can be helpful or can offer any additional assistance.

Preschool Spotlight

As we begin the “re-enrolllment” process I wanted to share some exciting events taking place in the KPrep classes over on the main campus.

Kprep students had the joy of participating in the TFA Christmas Program in the FBC Sanctuary on December 16th.  We sang about Jesus’ birth dressed as manger animals in front of the students and families from the entire school.  We definitely brought the CUTE to the program!  It was a memorable experience!

We also enjoyed a firetruck visit and learned about what to do in case of a fire.  We learned that we shouldn’t be frightened of the big, suited firefighters.  They are there to help!
