How to Visit TFCA

We want you to visit our school! Why? Because we know that once you visit the school, you'll be able to see the awesome work that God is doing through our faculty, staff, and our students. God's hand is evident all over our school, and we want you to see it!

Scheduling a Visit

It's simple to set up a visit at TFCA! There are several ways to do it:
  1. Call the school at (502) 695 - 0744. Ask for Krista Dulaney, but if she's unavailable, anyone can set up a tour.
  2. Use the Request A Tour form on our website, which will send us your information!
  3. Email Krista Dulaney, TFCA's Director of School Relations, and ask for a tour.
  4. Come to one of our Open House events, where we will have faculty and staff available to take you on a tour and answer your questions!

What To Expect

When you arrive for your scheduled tour, come to the main office of the school. Enter into the reception area and give your name to the person who greets you. TFCA Staff members usually know when a tour is scheduled, so your arrival shouldn't be a surprise! You'll be asked to fill out a short form while you wait; this information is used to follow up with you in the future.

Krista Dulaney does most of our school tours, but other office staff members can do so as well. Sometimes you may be joined by our Principal, Kim Burgess, or Vice Principal, Carrie Beth Tigges. We'll walk you around the school and show you all of the main areas (library, computer labs, multipurpose room, gymnasium, cafeteria, and classrooms) and any other areas that are of particular interest to you. For instance, if you have an incoming 4th grader, we'll be sure to show you all of the classrooms your 4th grader would be in at TFCA. We'll ask you questions along the way to make sure we show you everything your child is interested in!

Depending on the time of year and day you come in to tour, you may get to speak with the teacher(s) for your child's grade and one of our Principals. We'll do our best to answer every question you have or we'll take your information, research your question, and get back with you! You'll leave your tour with an information packet which includes a student application.

Beyond a Tour

Sometimes parents and students want to do more than go on a tour. We can set up a Shadow Day, where the student can sit in on classes with TFCA students. They'll have a student matched with them all day who will take them around, help them find what they need, and introduce them to fellow students! This is an especially good option for middle school and high school students, when the social aspect of a school is so important.
