Become familiar with the FACTS Family Portal

Rockbridge Academy utilizes the FACTS family of school management products, including FACTS Family Portal, FACTS Tuition Management, and FACTS Grant and Aid. All of these tools are accessed by logging into the FACTS Family Portal with the login that you created when you submitted your enrollment packet. 

Submit important health documents and emergency forms

If you haven’t done so already, please log into the FACTS Family Portal to verify your family's demographic and annual emergency information under WebForms by the first day of school. 

In order to administer prescription or even over-the-counter medication at school, the parents/guardians and your family physician must complete a consent form each school year.

For Over-The-Counter medication like acetaminophen or ibuprofen, please take THIS FORM to your physician for a signature.
 

For prescription medication like inhalers, EpiPen® injections, or insulin, please take THIS FORM to your physician for a signature.
