BA-CFA Sunday Message for March 3, 2019

March 3, 2019

Dear Bulldog Families,

On Friday, we had a great day celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  The day started with students showing off their costumes and ended with our staff engaged in a rap battle to see who can rap Dr. Seuss the best.  Help us decide by liking the videos on our Facebook page.

Enrollment for 2019-2020

Thanks to you, we have tremendous interest from families for the 2019-2020 school year.  If you have a friend who is interested in touring Brevard Academy or enrolling, now is the time to act.  We expect to have lengthy waitlists after our enrollment lottery on March 20.  Direct interested families to our enrollment tab on our website or have them call Sharon Briggs at 828-885-2665.  Refer a friend and earn a $10 uniform voucher.
