Tuition for Full Day Kindergarten Program
Kindergarten will be offered as half or full day programs. The full day program will include a fee based on Free and Reduced lunch qualification listed here. These rates can potentially change on a yearly basis, but will be similar to those listed. Free Lunch qualification ($1,700): Reduced Lunch qualification ($2,200): Full-price Lunch qualification ($2,700 total).
A $100.00 non-refundable down payment is required to reserve your seat and must be paid by April 15. The deposit will go toward the next year's tuition. If we do not receive the deposit within this time frame, the student will be at risk of losing their seat in the Full-Day Kindergarten program.
For a student to be eligible to attend the
full-day kindergarten class the tuition for the entire school year must be paid
in advance of the first day of school. If payment is not received prior to the first day of school, the student's seat in the full-day kindergarten program will be forfeited and the student will be placed in the half-day kindergarten program instead.
Open enrollment is designed to give all interested parents equal opportunity for their child to attend Foundations Academy. During open enrollment, all applications get equal consideration regardless of date submitted. An application received at the end of open enrollment receives equal treatment to one received on the first day of open enrollment. Open enrollment for the next school year always begins on the first day of school and ends on the last business day in February at 5:00 p.m.
Following the close of open enrollment, if the number of applications exceeds the number of open seats, a random selection lottery determines acceptance. If the number of applications does not exceed the number of open seats, all applicants are accepted for their respective grade.
Lotteries are open to the public, and parents are encouraged to attend. The date, time, and place of the lottery is communicated in writing to all applicants.
Lotteries will be held for any grade in which the number of applications exceeds the number of openings. Names are randomly selected, and applicants are accepted based on the order in which they are selected. The lottery continues until all names are drawn. Applicants who are not accepted will be placed on a waiting list in the order their names were selected.
accepted, you will receive an Acceptance Package. Parents must submit to the
school all of the following items by the date specified in the
letter. If these are not received by that date, your child may be removed from
the school’s Accepted List.

In order to accommodate parents who
have more than one child eligible for enrollment, siblings of students
accepted during the lottery (excluding North Carolina and Ohio schools)
or currently enrolled students are given preference over students who
don’t have accepted or enrolled siblings. Siblings will be offered the
first available seat in their respective grade or placed on a waiting
list with sibling preference.
preference is defined as children who have at least one common
parent/legal guardian AND are living in the same household at least 50%
of the time.
Students on waiting lists continue to receive school information. It is not unusual for a small percentage of accepted students to select other options prior to the start of school. Openings created by opt-outs are filled by those on waiting lists.
Do not become discouraged if your child is put on a waiting list. Openings can and do become available.
