I have already had one child graduate from FA... they prepared him for college. He completed his BS in 3 years instead of 4..... I still have one child at FA (8th grade) and he is already in advanced/honors courses and the staff is still pushing him higher. I am very thankful for their efforts, the secure atmosphere, and the results. Great school for the price!
