COVID-19 Status: COVID-19 has altered some of our admissions practices, but we are here, eager to speak with you, and happy to answer your questions.

Spring Info Session

Join us online for a brief introduction to the FCS academic program, campus, and community. Our Admissions Team and current FCS parents will answer your questions, discuss the admissions process, and explore what distinguishes an FCS education. Virtual info Sessions provide a great overview both for parents interested in potential late openings for the 2021-22 school year and for those planning ahead for future years. 

Friday, April 16 @ 10 AM

The schedule for our 2021-22 Open Houses and other Admissions events will be posted by early September.
