  • If your student is absent from class, the parent/guardian is required to notify both the base school and the Falls Church Academy attendance office (703) 207-4011.  Access to the attendance line is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.  Please provide the following information:

    • Student Name

    • Student ID number

    • Reason for the absence

    • Your name

    • Your contact number

  • Failure to contact the attendance office within 2-days of the absence will result in an unexcused absence.

Request for Pre-Arranged Absences

  • Request for Pre-Arranged Absence requires the approval of your student's administrator from their base school.  A copy of the signed request form should be provided to the Falls Church Academy attendance office prior to the absence.  The absence will be excused in their Academy class, upon approval of the base school administrator.  Please refer to the Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) Regulation 2234.7 to determine what is considered acceptable and/or unacceptable reasons.
