Interested in attending Fairfax Academy?

We kindly request a minimum of 2 days advanced notice for all visits.  

Please follow these steps

  1. Visits are highly recommended, but not required, and completely optional.
  2. Student visits are held January through March.
  3. All student visits are scheduled by school counselors and must be pre-arranged at least 2 days in advance.
  4. Students should meet with your School Counselor to talk about Fairfax Academy courses and your schedule, and which class students would like to visit.
  5. Counselors should contact Fairfax Academy Administrative Asst. Ginny Cate to schedule visits at vmcate@fcps.edu or 703-219-2226. Indicate the date of visit, the academy block of visit (AM 8:40-9:45am, MID 11:45 - 1:00pm, or PM 1:00-2:10pm), the course(s) to visit, and student's current grade level. Please have alternate days/times in case first choices are not available. 
  6. All student visitors must have a completed and signed Visitor's Pass (to be filled out by your base school counselor): Visitor%20Pass%20%26%20Shuttle%20schedule.pdf
  7. It is also recommended that students and parents attend the Fairfax Academy Open House on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 6:30-8pm. Parents & Students are invited to meet with teachers and visit classrooms! The Open House is optional, but helpful if students can't visit during the day. It's also a great time for parents to find out more information about our school and have all their questions answered.
  8. School Counselors will register students through the Academy Registration Portal.
  9. Confirmation letters will be sent out in late spring, and Welcome packets will be sent out in late summer.
  10. If you are not currently a student at a traditional FCPS high school, contact Academy Counselor, Maria Martin at mlmartin2@fcps.edu.
