Thank you for your interest in FA

Falmouth Academy is a learning community with remarkable teachers, supportive peers, and no back rows. The small scale of our school means that your student will be known. They will be supported academically, socially, and emotionally as they pursue diverse challenges and interests both inside and outside of school.

At Falmouth Academy, we value the beauty of knowledge and the wonder of imagination that creates life-long learners.  Your student will learn how to manage their time, take ownership of their studies, and chart their academic course. They will learn life skills that will take them beyond the classroom.

Take the next step by filling out the inquiry form below.  Once you do, we'll send you a viewbook and information about the admission process. While the viewbook and website are wonderful tools to introduce you to our school community, I invite you and your student to see the school in action. Please take advantage of the many opportunities to get to know the school—such as attending an information session, touring the school, or watching informational videos. 

Keep up with the life of the school by following Falmouth Academy's social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, and, YouTube) and reading the ever-changing news blogs on the homepage of the website.

Together, these will give you a full picture of the vibrant community that is Falmouth Academy—from what's happening in the classrooms, on the playing fields, in the labs and studios, and beyond.
