  • The student life department believes in the power of “do-ocracy”. This means that students take the lead in creating and running clubs, organizing and leading community service programs, planning spirit week and much much more. Being a student at FJA is about more than academic success — it is about making connections and building relationships with FJA students and staff. Programs include Spirit Week, dances, clubs, community service through fundraisers, clothing and food drives, and projects throughout metro Detroit. The Student Life department is dedicated to supporting students so they can turn their big ideas into reality and bond together as one strong FJA student body.
