Important News and Updates for FHCA On and Off-Campus Families!

Off-Campus Parents Meeting

Thursday, September 13, 6:30 p.m. at Faith Heritage campus, 4274 Duncan Rd., Millington TN. This make-up meeting is for any parent who has not represented his/her family at one of our meetings for this current school year, which meetings began in June. 

Enrollment Details

With the advent of the revision of our website have come several bumps in the road of technology. One of those bumps is that some parents may have not understood the need to send some of the required forms/information. So here is the fix for it: After clicking on the link to the new website, look under the Off-Campus top menu and click on “Forms.” Then choose any forms you have not already submitted. After filling in the forms, you will need to print them to submit them, either by regular mail, FAX, or scan and email.
Regular mail: FHCA, P.O. Box 280758, Memphis TN 38168. FAX: (901) 872-0828. Email: offcampus@faithheritage.com

1. The Curriculum Page, indicating what you are using this year for your student’s educational journey. For high school students, please state the name of each specific course: which math, which science, which history, etc. Also, be sure to fill in your assigned School District, according to where you live, at the top of the page. That info is required by the state of TN.

2. Payment & Fee Worksheet – be aware that your student is not considered enrolled in school until payment is made, or arrangements for payment have been approved. Send the annual fees in one of these ways:
· Mail a check or money order to the address given above.
· Call the regular on-campus school office on a week day (M-F) between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 P.M. to pay by credit or debit card. Phone no. is (901) 872-0828. Do NOT call this number for any other purpose. Only use the off-campus number for any questions.
· Print off the “Off-campus Card Payment Authorization Form” under the “Forms” menu item. Fill it out by hand, making sure that you clearly list each student’s name for whom you are paying on the line that says (description of goods/services). If your student(s) has a different last name than yours, please state that clearly. Then mail, FAX, or email that form to us, using one of the addresses/numbers stated above.
We have not established a seamless payment system, but we are working on it!

3. Copies of Student’s Immunization Record and Birth Certificate should be sent, especially with Kindergarten students. Students entering Middle School should have an updated Immunization form.

AAA Contest for 8th Graders

We want to make you aware of the Discovery Crew Contest open to 8th graders. Sixty students nationwide will win free round-trip airfare to Amsterdam, travel insurance, money for passports, and a river cruise through the Netherlands and Belgium. Now through September 21, 2018, students can enter for a chance to win at www.AAA.com/DiscoveryCrew. Winners will be selected based on a creative selfie, showcasing their love for travel, and their answers to three essay questions. AAA encourages any and all eighth graders who have a passion for learning about other destinations and cultures to enter this contest. You think no one ever wins these things? Our current junior, Summer Knowles, earned cash from AAA last spring for a Safe Driving Program at FHCA. And she and another student won several thousand $ from Toyota for a safe driving video they made and filmed themselves. They won the top prize in the U.S.A.!!!
