Enrollment and Admission Process

Enrollment for Returning Students
 
For each student enrolling, the following documents must be provided:

All returning FBA students must submit new enrollment paperwork each school year (with the exception of birth certificate and the record of immunizations if your student is up to date on all required immunizations). All parents who have registered a student will need to drop off all required enrollment documents during the enrollment period. During the enrollment period, you will have the chance to speak with an administrator about any questions or concerns you may have about policies, procedures, schedules, or special needs. All enrollment paperwork must be completed and turned in on or before August 10th along with the August tuition payment. Failure to have all completed paperwork turned in on or before August 10th will result in the surrender of enrollment and registration fee.
