Schools are doing the best they can right now, but it's a tough situation, so Fairfax Collegiate has a program to accelerate your child's learning this spring.

Fairfax Collegiate is offering students interactive, small-group math and writing instruction for the rest of the school year. Our classes are online, taught by experienced Fairfax Collegiate instructors, using advanced Zoom technology.

Classes meet every weekday for two weeks, and last two hours. Start times are 10:00 am, 12:30 pm, or 3:00 pm depending on the particular class. Most middle and high school classes meet at 3:00 pm to avoid any possible conflict with FCPS remote learning activities.

We follow current school curriculum guidelines and offer 8 levels of math and 3 levels of writing.  Students may enroll in these courses multiple times or progress to the next level as appropriate.

Math classes will enroll a maximum of 6 students.  Writing classes will enroll a maximum of 12 students.

The fee for each two-week, twenty-hour course is $400, which is less than the fee for comparable two-week Fairfax Collegiate Summer Program courses.
We plan on adding additional courses and perhaps additional subjects soon. If you have any ideas or suggestions for use, we would love to hear from you.
