Falls Church Academy Wins Virtually At VA HOSA State Leadership!

The 2021 VA HOSA State Leadership Conference (SLC) was held virtually March 12 – 14, but even with its online platform, student competitors felt it was more vibrant than ever. Through educational workshops and various competitive events, HOSA student members unlocked their potential within the healthcare field and formed new and lasting relationships.


Falls Church Academy would like to congratulate all those who competed at this event. For those students who placed, we wish them well as they prepare to compete at the HOSA Virtual International Leadership Conference, June 23-26. In addition, Falls Church Academy is proud to have two students taking leadership roles on the 2021-2022 HOSA Virginia State Board.


Many thanks go to all members, advisors, executive council officers, and teachers for allowing the first ever virtual SLC to be successfully completed.

Return to School Survey NEEDED from ALL Academy Parents!

Dear Academy Families,

Fairfax County Public Schools is moving forward with its plans to bring back high school students on January 26, 2021. In preparation for students' return to in person learning, it is critical that all Falls Church Academy families complete this survey to confirm their child's learning format preference for their Falls Church Academy class only, as well as to indicate transportation needs. 

Students are permitted to attend their Falls Church Academy class in person, and remain virtual in all other classes. They may also choose to continue to attend their Falls Church Academy class virtually. 

If students choose to attend their Falls Church Academy class in person, and they require FCPS transportation,  students will be required to go to their base school to pick up their Falls Church Academy shuttle. Falls Church Academy transportation will pick up and drop off at student's base schools only. 

All Falls Church Academy students must complete the survey at this link: https://forms.gle/ZCuVwe7nNNHvdDny7 

Thank you for completing this survey by Monday, December 14th. Please contact Bill McGreevy, Falls Church Academy Administrator (wcmcgreevy@fcps.edu) or Emarinn Oundee, Falls Church Academy Counselor (eaoundee@fcps.edu) with any questions.

Bill McGreevy

Academy Administrator
