Continuous Enrollment

Continuous Enrollment Details

The information outlined below is for the 2023-2024 Continuous Enrollment Period.

Our families, by popular demand, told us that you want your student at The First Academy until graduation, or until you inform us otherwise. With continuous enrollment, we guarantee your child’s spot for the subsequent year without requiring further paperwork or an annual online re-enrollment commitment!

Your student is automatically enrolled for the subsequent school year. When the Continuous Enrollment Status Change Period opens, we pray that 100% of our families plan to return for another year at The First Academy. Due to high demand and wait pool status across all divisions, if a family chooses to opt-out, their student’s spot will be opened to a wait pool status family. The Continuous Enrollment Change Period closes on February 25th.

The Linked Forms in the FAQ below will open when the Change Period opens.
