A $25 application fee and $100 screening fee are collected upfront, no other fees are charged until a student is accepted. Once accepted, parents are given a fee statement explaining how much is due and when. In general, all fees (book fees, registration fee, Night of Knights fee) and the first month’s tuition, FALCON fee (if applicable) and Stay & Play fee (if applicable) are due before the student begins class. Fees can be paid in person at the orientation meeting or through the FACTS Family Portal once a student is fully enrolled.
All students applying to Faith Academy are given two screenings. One is an academic screening to ensure they are placed into the appropriate grade for their current academic performance. This exam also helps identify any areas where a student is performing above or below level. We want students to be successful academically. In addition, all students are given a neurodevelopmental screening at our FALCON Center.
The entrance screening or neurodevelopmental screening helps to assess how a student processes information. While the FALCON staff are not diagnosticians, they can identify areas of potential learning differences and either recommend further evaluation or services that can help the student succeed.
After all screenings are completed, an admissions committee meets to discuss the applicant. Parents are then contacted to schedule an orientation meeting for enrollment or are given reasons for denial of the application.
Limited scholarships are available for Kindergarten – 12th grade. A student must be fully accepted before being considered for a scholarship.

Faith Academy wants to partner closely with parents. Parents are asked to volunteer time, attend Parent Classes of their choosing, and observe in their student’s classroom. We want our parents to feel welcome on campus and to know what is going on both in their student’s classroom and on the campus as a whole.
