Students Can Visit an Academy class

Come visit a Falls Church Academy class during the school day!

Student visits are currently being held through March 10th, on Tuesdays,, Wednesdays & Thursdays, and must be scheduled a week in advance. Students should see their high school counselor who will coordinate a day and time with our office. Note: Academy visits are only available for current 9th -11th grade students. 

Students must have a completed and signed Student Visitor Pass (received from students base school counselor) that they will be required to bring with them on the day of the scheduled visit. They will need to show their visitor pass to the bus driver (if riding an academy shuttle) and when they arrive and check in at Falls Church Academy before going to the Academy class they are scheduled to visit.

If the student plans to drive to the Academy, please inform Ms. Fields in room 186-1 in the Falls Church Academy hallway, let the school counselor know so they can request a one-day Academy parking pass.

New Kiss & Ride Location Starting Monday, November 8

Falls Church Academy Students and Parents, 

Starting on Monday, November 8th we will be operating a new and improved Kiss & Ride location at Falls Church High School! The map below details the entrance at the intersection of Holly Hill Drive and Jacks Lane.  Cars will enter as shown, loop around the parking lot, and drop off their students at Door #4.  Cars will exit the same way they entered. 

The gate marked in blue will be closed between 7:45 am and 8:15 am. Additionally, there will be no left turn at the entrance of the Kiss & Ride, marked by a pink dashed line. Please plan accordingly for your commute in and out of the parking lots.   

The former Kiss & Ride location will now only be accessed by buses and Falls Church High School staff.

This new Kiss & Ride location will serve as our primary Kiss & Ride location throughout the renovation process! 

The change in this traffic pattern won't impact the shuttle bus riding students coming to Falls Church Academy.

Thank you for your support with this necessary change and please reach out if you have questions!
