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!

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
