Fairfax Academy’s attendance policy follows FCPS guidelines. We are considered a separate school, so absences must be reported directly to us. Please do not assume your base school will forward your attendance calls to Academy!
We must hear from a Parent/Guardian for ALL absences. We will not accept notices directly from students. The Parent/Guardian must notify both the Academy and the base school when students are absent for any reason.
E-Notify Calls go out each evening to the home telephone number to make parents aware of unverified and unexcused absences.
The Academy parking fee is $67 for the entire school year, and that fee is waived if you already have purchased a parking tag from your base school.
View our Transportation page for more information about shuttles and student drivers/parking.
