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

School News

We want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and holidays filled with multiplied blessings, including special family times together (without the stress of school at some point) 😊 No grades are due until Jan. 15, although you are welcome to send them sooner. Parents of seniors, please send your grades before Christmas break, if possible.

We hope your school year is going well!

Paying Enrollment Fees: Due to adjustments being made to our new web site, some parents' payments have not been received. You should be aware, according to the laws of Tennessee, that your child(ren) are not considered enrolled in school if your fees are not paid (or payment arrangements made). If you still need to pay your annual enrollment fee, you may use two methods:
1) Use this credit card form* and mail to address below. (Credit does not work on-line. You must print the form, fill it out by hand, and then mail it to us.) Another option is to call the school office (901-872-0828) between 8:30-2:30 week days and give the credit info by phone.
2) Or mail a check or money order to our address :
FHCA
PO Box 280758
Memphis, TN 38168
*A four dollar convenience fee per family will need to be added to the total if you pay by credit/debit card.

Curriculum Form: If you haven't yet filled out the Curriculum Page and submitted it, we need that too. The form is available here. Be sure to fill in the name of the official School District in which your family lives.

English Teacher needed: We are currently in need of an English teacher for middle-school and high school at our on-campus day school during morning hours. If you know someone who may be interested in teaching English (ideally a retired teacher), please let us know ASAP. Thanks!

ONLY SENIORS: FAFSA application for 2019-2020 (Financial Aid application) opened up on October 1st at www.FAFSA.gov. You MUST submit this application, based on your (student’s and parents’) 2017 Federal Tax Statements, at least by the end of January, 2019.

Blessings!!!

Off-Campus Director/Guidance Dept.

Prayer Needed

Prayer Needed for Our Student - Megan Erkens, one of our off-campus middle-school students, is in ICU at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville. Both of her lungs have collapsed due to her having Muscular Dystrophy. Her condition has been worsening daily, and she is only breathing by machine. Megan was a former gymnast. Your prayers are urgently needed and appreciated by her and her family. Her family moved here from Belgium several years ago. They have been very active in the home-school community. Thanks!

Other Service Projects


Twentieth Year Celebration
- Faith Heritage Christian Academy began in 1999, so as we approach 2019, we will celebrate our school's 20th Anniversary! As we consider the impact our school has had in the lives of thousands of students and their families, we want to give thanks to God, the Faith Heritage Baptist Church, and all our families and graduates through the years of our ministry. Considering this milestone, we want to encourage you to help us continue our efforts to improve and to further involve our students in a wider ministry of service to our community.

One of the ways that you can help us is to participate in Kroger’s Community Rewards program. You may direct Kroger to send benefits to our school (see attached form). Your shopping at Kroger will be a big part of helping us to reach our goal of raising $5000 between now and May 1. A good deal of this money will be used to make the 2019 graduation ceremony one no one will ever forget! We have had a commitment from a nationally-known personality to speak at the graduation. Other events are in the works which will demonstrate our commitment to our students and their families to help provide truly Christian educational opportunities. For those who do not shop at Kroger, your monetary gifts between now and the December 31 will also be greatly appreciated!


Christmas Service Projects – One of our families helps to coordinate a large, long-term ministry in the Memphis Binghampton neighborhood of Brinkley Heights. They prepare Christmas boxes for the families of that very needy area. If you would like a copy of the list of items needed, please let us know. Items are needed the first few days of December.

Box Tops for Education - We are grateful for so many families participating in cutting out the “Box Tops” symbol and sending them to us. You enabled us to earn nearly $600 for the school last year. Keep up the good deed!
