Policies and Procedures

All students must abide by the Academy’s Policies and Procedures.  Failure to do so will result in removal from class.


All students must be pre-registered for classes at the ACFA.  To register for a class, fill out the registration form.

Enrollment forms can either be dropped off, faxed, mailed, or E-mailed to the Registrar.  A separate registration form is required for each course.

Bring the acceptance letter with you to the first day of class, as this will ensure you a spot if there is any conflict with regard to number of students enrolled in a program.
