Great family atmosphere where everyone knows everyone. Teachers are lifelong mentors to students. Administration is top-notch and demonstrate fair discipline among all grades. Students are allowed and encouraged to participate in multiple sports and clubs. This school does not actively "recruit" athletes to play on sports teams which gives opportunities for students to play together in pre-K through Varsity learning teamwork and family values along the way. One-third of students who have taken the ACT score a 30 or above on at least one sub-section. The FA band continuously score highly in state-wide competitions.

My experience at Fayette Academy is one I will never forget. I have made friends and built relationships with not only the students, but also the teachers that will last a life time. Although Fayette Academy is a small school, the achievements that have been accomplished are huge. Fayette Academy sets goals for the students that challenge their thinking ability in a positive way. It has a christian environment that is often taken for granted. I have been going to Fayette Academy since Kindergarten and the changes that have been made are only making the school better. The teachers not only care about your grades, but also about the person you are becoming. I have been blessed with the opportunity to attend this school.
This is a school interested on the behalf of the students; the teacher-to-student ratio is ideal for a small high-school (not too many, and not too little). It feels more as if it were a family atmosphere, and many students and teachers do indeed come together in times of distress and worship. Activities and academics are usually limited due to funding; however, if tuition were increased, havoc from parents would most likely occur. I would be extremely interested in visiting and improving the school once I graduate from college and enter adulthood (where I am able to support myself financially). Many kids that come here are full of potential but are not exercised to reach it (or many others do not care to do so). I feel as if the only way for improvement is within the student body and alumni, as we students have our own insight and experience first hand. Overall, this is the best school Fayette County offers.
