Why Foundations Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Foundations Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. Our exceptional teachers individualize instruction based on your child’s needs. In addition we focus on real-world skills and how to be a good person. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"We continue to be thoroughly pleased with our daughter's progress and how Foundations Academy strives to challenge her in all areas. She enjoys school and is blossoming into a more confident, caring, and responsible girl. We can't wait for our youngest to start school there as well." - Foundations Academy Parent

Good evening, Parents The Foundations Leadership team is hoping that many of you will take the time to complete the online parent survey. So far, about 13% of our parents have completed the survey. Looking at the results to this point, along with current events, safety is a huge concern many of you have. With these comments, we’ve already scheduled a meeting for our safety team to address any emergent issues. I’ve also reached out to some parents in our community who would like to volunteer some time to assist in keeping our school safe. And I’ve reached out to NHA to address arrival parking lot concerns. Your Leadership Team is here to listen and address your concerns. Our ultimate goal is to make Foundations THE school to send your kids to- known for excellence in academics, moral focus, community service and safety! Please complete your Voice of the Parent survey, so we can address concerns of the entire Foundations community... positive feedback is welcomed as well! (Kristen Huizingh, Interim Principal)
After a chilly arrival this morning, the school is warm with a learning buzz throughout the building! Stay warm, Moms and Dads!
