Give Today. Transform Tomorrow.
FA has a long-standing tradition of philanthropy that unites and engages our entire community.
FA remains the region’s leader in college preparatory education because of our exceptional students, world-class faculty, and generous parents, grandparents, alumni, and parents of alumni.
Our Development Office works closely with School and volunteer leaders to advance the mission of the Academy. Together, we are focused on supporting an extraordinary education for all students.
The Annual Fund means the difference between maintenance and excellence for FA. Your gift to the Fund provides essential operating dollars for initiatives that tuition alone does not cover. When you give to the Annual Fund you are creating opportunities for students to go deeper and fly higher.
Throughout the year, Fredericksburg Academy is proud to host several special events. Planned, organized, and run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, these events not only help to bring our FAmily closer, they also aid in raising funds and awareness for a wide-range of programs and needs. Read on to find out more about our most successful (and exciting) annual events!
Everyone knows that the biggest party of the year is Celebrate FA!, Fredericksburg Academy’s annual party and auction! This is an exciting, fun-filled night of dancing, drinks, silent and live auctions, and fellowship. But most importantly, Celebrate FA! is an event that directly supports our school and students.
There is no disputing the importance of Celebrate FA!, since the funds raised from this event provide invaluable financial support for every facet of a Falcon's educational experience - from infrastructure maintenance and growth, faculty development, technology initiatives, scholarship opportunities, and more. The success of Celebrate FA! depends wholly on the support of our network of FAmilies and friends - from donations and underwriting sponsorships, to volunteers who give freely of their time in preparation for the big night, to the true Falcon spirit displayed by everyone who attends. The excitement for this event is real, it is palpable, and it is contagious!
Grandparents And Special Friends Day
Every year, in early Spring, we invite the grandparents and special friends of Lower School Falcons to campus for a morning of memory-making good times and to celebrate and showcase Lower School student achievement in the performing and visual arts. Invitees are able to view an extensive exhibit of student art work, meet teachers, hear from Head of School Karen Moschetto, and watch their beloved Falcon on stage in the Donald and Susan Reed Theater at an intimate performance.
It’s an extraordinary experience to witness what happens when the elements of family and school - two of the most influential components of a child’s life - come together for a morning of laughter and sharing. Events like Grandparents and Special Friends Day are experiences from which lifelong memories are made.
Falcon Golf Tournament
Each year, FA hosts a golf tournament for members of our FAmily and their guests to support the Annual Fund. There are multiple contests, raffles, and prizes to be won, but the real winners are FA students and teachers. Throughout the event, refreshments are available, and a buffet lunch and awards ceremony follow the round.
Not a golfer (yet)? No problem! There is also an Amateur Hour for beginners to join the fun on the driving range for some individual instruction and a great time!
