Partnering with parents for student success

Foundations Academy partners with families to develop young minds with excellent character, critical thinking skills, a passion for learning, and a love for God. We want to create a space where children can achieve their potential.

Our core values

These core values are the pillars of our foundation.


Academic Growth

Consistent academic growth is the essential standard at Foundations Academy to gauge student success. Our curriculum is grounded in the basics while being highly engaging and focused on the individual learner.


Whole Person Philosophy

Children are dynamic and have been created by God to explore the world around them. We are committed to fostering education that addresses the Whole Person in every child: Academically, Spiritually, Socially and Physically.


Classroom Support

Positive classroom environment is an essential part of learning. Student learning is our focus, and as such, our teachers and staff are trained to manage classrooms well. We work with families and students to set a standard of excellence in behavior in the classroom along with support tools for students and teachers.


Supporting Our Teachers

We love our teachers! With our support, teachers can stay focused on teaching. They are given the creative freedom to practice the art of teaching. Teachers are able to have positive connections with students and success in teaching at Foundations Academy.


Partnership with Parents

No one knows your child as well as you do. Together we create an Individual Success Plan that works for your child. Community is part of who we are, as such, we believe family involvement in the education process is vital for the success of all students. We also believe in open communication between parents, teachers, and staff.


Safe Environment

Student safety is our highest priority. We maintain safety measures within our hiring process and our daily operation process. Students should be safe physically, mentally, and socially. We do not tolerate bullying in any form. Our trained staff will always make sure that student safety and health is our top priority.

Our teachers are fully qualified for the positions they hold.
