Welcome to Fairfield Preparatory Academy!

We are a public charter school for competitive sports and academics for students in grades EK-6. Our mission is to promote the academic, emotional, and physical development of our students through the promotion of teamwork, sportsmanship, and athletic competition. By developing these skills, student-athletes will become confident and capable contributing members of our community.

Academics – we teach an Ohio Standards-based curriculum and individualize instruction to each student by assessing students on a bi-weekly schedule to know if a student is working ahead, falling behind, or right on track. We teach our core subjects of English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies & Science every morning.

Fitness & Extracurriculars – all students participate in our afternoon PE program which includes Health topics & Fitness activities. In addition to general PE, students can choose to play sports or participate in Art or Music classes.

Family – we value families, partnership & participation—within the school community & at home. All sports team practices and most games are scheduled during the school day to keep evenings free for family time.

Thank you for choosing Fairfield Academy!
