Headmaster's Letter

On behalf of our students, families, faculty and staff, and Board of Trustees that make up the Wildcat FRAmily, I want to welcome you to the new Flint River Academy website. All of us associated with FRA are excited about our school and all that is planned for the 2019-2020 school year.


Flint River Academy is a fully accredited college preparatory school with students ranging from 3K through 12th grade. Since it opened its doors in 1967, FRA graduates have stayed home to go to the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, University of West Georgia, Kennesaw State, Columbus State, LaGrange College, and other great State of Georgia colleges and universities, while others have ventured from home to attend the Air Force Academy, Harvard, Auburn, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and other nationally prominent universities.


While our rigorous curriculum has prepared our students for the academic challenges of post-secondary learning, organizations such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Key Club, National Honor Society, Beta Club, and numerous service opportunities have served to shape their character to have compassion, perseverance, determination and the will to succeed against the struggles of life.


At FRA, there is something for everyone. If you’re not into cheerleading, athletics and clubs, we have a music, art, drama, and literary program that continues to expand and grow because of the talents of our students.


Again, thank you for visiting our website, I hope you will contact me to set up a time to visit our school and see why Flint River Academy is such a great and safe place to enroll your child.


I hope you can visit with us soon.


John Welch, Ed. S.

Proud FRA Head of School
