Celebrating the first senior class of Freedom Preparatory Academy

Freedom Preparatory Academy governing board, administration and parent community enthusiastically invite you to attend the first Graduation Ceremony for the school.

This free event takes place Thursday, May 19, at 2:30 pm, at the Provo City Library Ballroom, 550 N University Ave, Provo, UT 84601. Business dress requested.

The Freedom Preparatory Academy senior class of 25 students has forged the path for all future FPA students to follow. “Most graduates never have the opportunity to be the first ones to set in motion future traditions,” said Kim Flewallen, Assistant Principal and upper level math teacher. “These seniors have become experts at being the ‘first.’ They are not merely following the clearly cut path of those who have gone before,” Flewallen continued, “They are the ones actually forging ahead, cutting the path and shaping the future for all who come after.”

FPA allows students to come up with their own “class” service projects at each grade level in the areas of school, community, nation, and international. The class of 2016 took this to heart. They started the Eagle Service Unit, a campus club allowing individual students to develop and carry out service projects, as well as starting the Student Leadership organization. A sampling of the service projects completed over the past four years include taking toys and school supplies to Tahiti, assembling school supply bags to take to an orphanage in Mexico, making blankets and hero capes for refugees, planting trees in France, make and sell tie wallets to donate the funds to build water wells in India, clearing the grounds around the school, organizing a Global Youth Service day, and making Teeny Tear Diapers for premature babies who passed away. Their final service legacy is using their Senior Trip to help orphans at the Good Will Foundation in Mexico.

A school sponsored scholarship has been set up to offer two students’ financial aid in moving forward. This scholarship is available to students who are effective communicators, critical thinkers, ethical and passionate leaders, life-long learners, and who will have a positive and measurable impact in their local community.
