Best decision ever to enroll my son at FRA nine years ago! The challenging academics, small class size and caring, personal attention have helped him thrive in the classroom. (I just heard that almost 10% of this year's graduating class has received National Merit recognition.) The inclusive Christian environment and focus on service learning have truly engaged my son to use his gifts to the fullest in being of benefit to the world. I appreciate that FRA encourages well-rounded students by enabling them to explore opportunities in the academics, the arts and athletics. The no-cut policy in virtually all sports is a big plus at FRA. It's not very well known, but the school has significant diversity and a large number of international students. My son's global views have grown as a results of these relationships. Most importantly, FRA truly is a loving community. I think the "inclusive Christian" focus is done just right. Being a person of faith and integrity is part of each student's day...but is not too pushy. As a parent, it is such a relief to know that my son is in the right place...a place that feels like home to him. As I have spent time around FRA, it has come to feel like home to me too. Our family has developed friendships at FRA that will definitely last a lifetime!
Wow! What can I say? I love this place! The teachers are challenging, yet caring. I really like the middle school dean and the new head of school, Mr. Casey. If you are looking for a place for your whole family and where your children are challenged and supported academically, this is it!
