Hurricane Florence Update

Hurricane Florence Update

Hurricane Florence is rapidly approaching North Carolina.  TeamCFA network schools dot North Carolina from Wilmington to Waynesville.  Please keep all 14 schools in your thoughts and prayers as we prepare for this historic storm.

In the coming days and weeks we may need to call on our friends from across the country to support our schools, staff, and students.  We will do our best to keep you updated.

Are you prepared?
