Perspectives

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."

Girls Lacrosse Team Nets First Win in Program History

In its inaugural season, the FRA girls lacrosse team captured its first win in program history with a 12-7 victory over Harpeth High School on Tuesday. Coach Callahan Kent said about the win, "On defense, the girls stayed in man-to-man, won the majority of the ground balls, and improved on the communication as the game went on, and on offense, they passed with precision and power around the 8 meter. They worked so hard, and I am so proud of everything they have accomplished so far this season."
