Augsburg Fairview Academy is an awesome school. I am a parent and have served on the Board for the last three years. My student has attended AFA for three years and will be a Senior this year. It has totally changed his outlook on education and he has excelled beyond my wildest expectations. He wants to attend Augsburg College after graduation.
