Why Choose FA?

At Foundation Academies, your child will be challenged, encouraged, celebrated, and loved.

We don’t promise perfect grades or Ivy League admission – even though FA scholars have achieved both.

We promise to equip our scholars K-12 to excel in learning, and empower them to lead a purpose-filled life.

That's what we do; that’s why we’re here. Apply today and let’s make your child’s future bright.

How FA Admission Works

    No cost.

    Foundation Academies is a FREE public charter school. There is NO COST to attend and NO COST to apply.

  • 2

    Apply for admission

    New students and siblings of current FA scholars hoping to attend FA MUST SUBMIT APPLICATIONS for the upcoming school year.

    We expect to enroll more than 80 new kindergartners for 2023-24. In addition, FA also expects openings for FA Collegiate (grades 9-12) for the upcoming school year. Other openings may occur before the new school year opens in August 2023.

    Your application gets you into the lottery.

    Applicants will be SELECTED BY COMPUTERIZED, RANDOM LOTTERY on March 9, 2023.

    Admitted or Wait List?

    If FA does not have openings in your requested grade, your child is placed on a WAIT LIST and you are notified if an opening becomes available.
