BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
Parents who should be completing this survey:

Those with Big Steps Academy students remaining with BSA for B/A grade school up to/including Grade 4 (West Springs) and Grade 6 (St. Joan of Arc) in September 2021
Those considering applying for their child to attend FSA’s All Day Kinder curriculum program instead of attending before/after kindergarten at St. Joan of Arc or West Springs
Important: All-day kindergarten at FSA is available through the summer months. Alternately, there are summer camps for children who are at least five years of age by July 1st (camp ages are 5-12).
Children are eligible for kindergarten in September 2021 if born no later than December 31, 2016.
Kindergarten classes can continue for your child through the summer at FSA prior to attending Grade 1. Please know that continuing kindergarten over the summer is an option, NOT a requirement, for OSC attendance in September.
Alternating Fridays for West Springs kindergarten students are covered in FSA’s regular monthly fee.
Half day Friday coverage for West Springs OSC students is covered in BSA’s regular monthly fee.
PD Days or other school closure days for OSC students are not included in regular monthly fees. Please ask the office about the EXTRA STEPS® program for this coverage.
