FIA ADMISSIONS

Curious. Creative. Caring.

FIA is a growing community where students and faculty come together to discover, to challenge and to create. Collaboration and holistic learning are the common language. We are excited to hear from you, get to know the student and the whole family, and fine tune the transition and curriculum fit for each student, starting right in the admissions process! Getting to know the candidates and their families is the primary goal of our admissions welcome to the FIA family. We want to ensure candidates are comfortable, well informed and engaged throughout the process of getting to know us and completing the admissions materials.

Prep Admissions (PreKindergarten to 6th Grade)

Applications are accepted once a child is born and named! We maintain waiting lists but expect families, once they have paid the application fee, will remain in touch each year to keep the application active.Once admitted, the child and families will be invited to a Campus Visit Day in the spring before the start of the school year.
