Welcome to

Forest Area Community Schools

We are located in beautiful northern Michigan, approximately 35 minutes southeast of Traverse City, MI.


Construction Continues Our extensive renovations and additions at both campuses continue to move in a positive direction. Unfortunately, we experienced a number of delays during the construction process this summer so these projects have moved into our 2019 – 2020 school year. The new, secure entrance at Fife Lake Elementary will be completed very soon. The entrance to the MS/HS campus is not completed so folks will again be asked to use the central office entrance to begin the school year. Rest assured, we are working collaboratively with Eckler Building Solutions to finalize projects as quickly as possible. Please continue to be patient as we finish up the many projects to our campuses. Questions may be directed to our central office at (231) 369 – 4191.




Forest Area’s mission is to provide a nurturing educational environment, which will help our students form positive attitudes toward learning, and help build effective life skills.
