Gilkey Athletics offers a number of fall, winter and spring competitive sports teams. Most teams compete in the Metro Christian League (MCL), a sports league for independent, private and public middle schools.
Each season lasts two to three months and meets for practice and/or competition about three times per week. The cost for each sport is $150. There is a “no cut” policy. Teams will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have questions about the Athletics program please contact Director of Extracurricular Programs Jonathan Mascaut.

The FAIS Scrip Program is a free and easy way to raise money to support FAIS events and activities. Scrip is just another term for gift cards or gift certificates that are tendered just like cash at participating businesses. Every merchant that participates has their own Gift Cards/Certificates with special logos, colors, water marks, serial numbers, and dollar increments. Scrip is used like cash!
Visit the Parents welcome page to download the current scrip form.
Parent participation via volunteer commitment plays an essential role at FAIS by 1) modeling responsible, service-oriented behavior to students and 2) involving the entire family in the student’s educational life. In addition, the volunteer system allows FAIS to keep administrative expenses low relative to many other schools.
FAIS requires that every family commit to 20 hours of service each year. If the 20 hours are not met, families will be charged $20 per unfulfilled hour.
