Family Support

FACS is more than just a school… we’re family. And family to us means: Fam, I love you. So, thank you for being part of the fam.

COMMUNICATION RESOURCES & PLATFORMS

These platforms help streamline regular communication to FACS families about everyday life - from academics to extracurricular activities - happening on campus. 

PraxiSchool, tuition and academic platform

PraxiSchool serves as the tuition payment and academic platform where families make payments and access grades and class schedules. Students and families have a portal via any regular desktop computer or laptop or the PraxiSchool mobile app, via App Store. Questions? Email business@facsmemphis.org

FACS Connect, online community

FACS Connect is the official online community, where families can share information with one another and access important school information, all in a password-protected environment. Questions? Email communications@facsmemphis.org
