A Year In: Parent Perspective

The Brim family chose FRA for their rising freshman last year. Now that they are a year (and a couple of months) in, they describe their experience in the admission process and their thoughts on the decision they made. Click here to hear their story


My FRA Experience

Chloe – A New Student Perspective

" I don’t feel like a number here at FRA. I have a name, and people use it. FRA loves you for who you are, and they want you to embrace you. They support you and are willing to give you the resources to help you succeed and excel.”


How FRA Influenced Our Move To Nashville

The Halas Family, New FRA Family

"The grace and warmth that our family has experienced isn't an accident. That's something that has been fostered in the culture. It is a very authentic, real place where your kids can grow."

Your Child. Our Mission.

Riley Casey '17

"I'm excited for my future at Columbia University because I feel confident FRA has prepared me to do things well. I have gotten to figure out who I am, and I am very thankful for that."

David Tucker - Faculty Member

“I've been here for 35 years, and I've become like family with my coworkers and coaching staffs and built lifelong relationships with students as I've watched them grow up. Over time, your roots grow deeper and deeper, and there is nothing that can replace that.”

Why I Chose FRA

Nia Williamson '19

“We wanted a place where people knew her and where she could be appreciated for her unique self but also be challenged to be her best self.” -Jim Williamson, Nia's father

Rob Miller '82

"Almost everything I do now can be traced back to life lessons that began at FRA. One of the principles I preach on athletic fields and movie sets is everyone has the will to win, but the will to prepare is what counts. FRA prepares its students to win."

Last season, Mitchell played in five games for the national championship-winning Georgia Bulldogs. Last night was the first time he faced his former team, as he earned a solo tackle.
