My child has attended this school since K3. We love it! Would recommend it to everyone. The faculty and staff make my child feel loved and safe. They have chapel every Wednesday at 9 a.m.. If you wonder what Foundation is like, give them a call for a tour on Wed. mornings and ask to stop by chapel. It's a great time of praise and worship. Pastor Will has messages for the kids each week that are on their level. He usually has demonstrations that help make the message clear to the students. You'll get a personal touch at Foundation Academy.

Think twice!!!! My kids attended this school for 4 weeks, they were miserable!!!!! At the open house it was All fake. They acted like the sweetest people ever, but upon Actually being enrolled... EVERYTHING changed! I had to withdraw my kids and go back To our old school. Now, I'm having a hard day time ( almost a month later) with them Releasing my kids....they are refusing to let the other school enroll them even though they Have been back at their old school more than 3 weeks. My advice....don't do it! Worst mistake of my life!!!!!!!

As a family who has 3 children who attend FA, we are so thankful for the teachers and staff who partner with us to grow the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual well-being of our children. This is not just a school, this a family unit! These are people who genuinely care for each other. The emphasis on community service and involvement is impressive. The teachers challenge the thinking of the students. FA strives to keep the kids involved through many extra curricular sports, drama, and community projects. We are thrilled with this school and can't say enough positive comments all around.

I was a terrified parent of 6th grade, for my son....and for myself! However, my son just left 6th grade feeling like a rock star! I owe a huge part of this to Coach Lord, the Head Football Coach at FA. Each summer, coach allows any middle-high school boy to participate in summer workouts. Because of this, my son walked into 6th grade, knowing the campus, many of the staff and a ton of older boys. Coach Lord encourages his Varsity players to be supportive mentors and he encourages his younger players to work hard and be leaders. My favorite day, my son came home telling of how he was the prayer leader that day for Varsirty and middle school players. He spoke of being terrified and then of his awe, to be given such an honor and to be encouraged by the older boys in this.

Excellent School! The lives of our 3 children have truly been blessed by the influence of the teachers, staff and families at FA. Being a part of the FA family offers much more than just a great education...FA really partners with families to "educate" and "edify" the whole child. Love this school and what it stands for!

It's a decent school. The academics are approperiately challenging. However, the teachers focus so much on their relationships with the students that they regress to discipline students. As you can imagine, this turns disasterous sometimes. The school as a whole is also afraid to take a stand on true Christianity. If a biblical truth could offend someone in the slightest bit, they say to forget it. This causes confusion in beliefs. It's not a strong foundation in spirituality, but it definately is strong in academics and artistic interpretation.

After suffering through Windermere Prep for 2 years, I am finally able to say we have found a great school in Foundation Academy, not only for its academics, but also for the spiritual and personal growth our children are recieving. thank you foundation. Your name suits you well. from a very relieved parent.

We have been attending this school for several years. The teachers are genuinely concerned about our families. The community this school has with teachers, parents, and kids is amazing. The academics are great , but most importantly, the faculty and staff are concerned with the TOTAL well-being of the child. We love it here, our kids say they never want to go anywhere else. One big happy family! Go Lions!!

Excellent school. Our oldest went there for Pre-K 3 and 4 and we could not afford to have our middle child and oldest child there at the same time. We put our oldest in public school for Kindergarten. Our financial situation has changed a bit and we will be placing him back at Foundation. What a big difference between public school and this fabulous private school. We LOVE the staff, the students, how active the parents are and the strong academic program. We could not be more pleased with this school.

We did not have a good experience with this school. While my child is gifted and excelled academically, he was criticized by both his teachers and faculty for being Catholic and not not Baptist. It eventually became so uncomfortable that we withdrew him. My son's best friend has cerebral palsy (but extremely gifted) and he was turned down for admission because the school is not required to meet federal guidelines for the disabled. Otherwise, the curriculum is strong but our family believes there is more to school than just academics.

I second the last comment - This was the best decision we ever made. My son has made friends, they have a great sense of community at this school. The sports programs are growing and with the new campus we will have room for more programs. The teachers have been wonderful. My only regret is that we did not move him to FA sooner.

What an awesome school! My daughter was moved here from public school 3 years ago. The best decision I made. From K to now 2nd she has excelled. All her teachers have been warm and very focused on giving the kids the best education. She is gifted, but the teachers always give extra time for the students that need it. A new drama program was added this year and it is great. They are building the sports programs and when they move to the new site in 2007 they will have their own facilties. The christian enviroment is so great. They are growing and will experience growing pains but I am confident that they will overcome them and continue to keep the focus on the kids. Unfourtunatly this is out last year here as we are moving to N.C. I hate to leave this school!

High quality programs, teachers really show caring and love for what they do, and for the kids. Do not attend here if you do not want your children exposed to a Christian environment.

We sent the first of our three children to Foundation for his Kindergsarten year. He will be in first grade in the fall of 2004. We were very pleased with both the level of academic emphasis and the importance placed on a Biblical basis for all education. His teacher took the extra time needed with our strong willed child to keep him interested and challenge his full potential. The administration, at least at the elementary level, is very responsive to parental input. We are also very impressed that all field trips have a learning component and are not just a day off from school. Check this place out. You will be glad you did.
