AHC’s Woodbury Park
A dream, serving children from diverse income levels in the same community, came true when in 2008 F.C.M.S. opened its first classroom within the Frederick building of ACH’s Woodbury Park Community in Clarendon. This classroom, The Fred, is F.C.M.S.’s model classroom: 1/3 of the children attend on partial/income-based scholarship and are residents of Woodbury Park and 2/3 come from full-tuition paying families from throughout the Northern Virginia area. At just around 7ish % of F.C.M.S.’s total enrollment the commitment to provide scholarships to less financial fortunate children is Full Circle’s philanthropic mission. The magic of the atmosphere that resides in this classroom can only truly be understood by observing the children of attorneys, taxi drivers, teachers, line cooks and doctors happily working side by side in the creation of their own peaceful children's community – where income levels are irrelevant.
F.C.M.S. is excited to announce the 2014 AHC/F.C.M.S. partnership expansion with the opening of a Young Children’s Community in Westover and a Primary classroom at Jordan Manor in Ballston. As at Woodbury Park, a 1/3 to 2/3 income-model bringing together children and families of varied income levels will be followed. At full enrollment, 14 additional children from lesser means will be brought into the F.C.M.S. family.
