Fall 2020 Semester Updates

  • FCAAE will only offer online classes this fall.
    • The safety and well-being of our students and instructors as well as the health and safety of our school communities is FCAAE's first priority.
    • The only way to ensure that FCAAE classes take place as scheduled is to move to online only classes in the near term.
  • What does online only mean for swim, basketball and pickleball?
    • Unfortunately, these popular classes will not be offered in the near term. It is difficult to know that we are disappointing so many loyal students.
    • FCAAE truly hopes you will try something new this fall - expand your horizons and provide much needed support to our nonprofit and instructors.....
  • Classes will start after Labor Day although remember classes have varying start dates.
    • Historically FCAAE classes end before Thanksgiving with the exception of a few fitness classes. However, with the move to online classes, there is a high likelihood that FCAAE can add November-February sessions for classes that would benefit from additional weeks.
  • Fall 2020 class information will be emailed. There will be NO paper brochure. 
    • Look for our "Registration Is Open" email sometime around August 20th.
    • We realize many people rely on receiving our traditional red and white brochure in their mailbox. However, the financial impact of this spring's COVID-19 closure requires eliminating expenses to ensure FCAAE's financial health.
    • Electronic communication also allows FCAAE to more quickly respond to student demand for classes by adding new sessions to popular classes as well as providing the flexibility to create new classes during the semester instead of waiting for a new semester to begin.
    • Updates will also be posted on our Facebook page, Twitter account, and local community social media sites.
    • Please help spread the news about our classes once you receive this email. FCAAE wants to make sure people who depended on the mail brochure learn about the new offerings and we could use your help!
  • Registrations and payments will be made online - since touchless transactions protect all of us.
    • FCAAE will accept phone orders and will gladly provide registration assistance if needed. Simply email director@fcaae.org or call 412-696-1410.
    • If you registered for a class since 2019, you already have an FCAAE online account whether you registered online or by mail. 
      • Log in using the email you provided at registration and your password - or the initial password I emailed you when I notified you that an online account was created.
  • FCAAE is researching online class meeting software.
    • Free training will be available to learn this meeting platform.
