Why Join Us?
It’s not just about developing the skills of students -- working at Foundation Academies is also about developing yourself. This district is not a revolving door; the people who work here tend to stay here, and together, cultivate and refine their craft as lifelong educators and learners. Teachers have a voice, and because of that, there’s a culture that’s been developed that we refer to as “FAmily” - because once you’re here, that’s what you join: a family that makes an impact. Every. Single. Day.

10 Reasons You'll Love Working at Foundation Academies.
1. What We Do Works
Each year, data from the State Department of Education shows that we continue to outperform every other school in the city of Trenton in mathematics and English Language Arts. This academic achievement happens because we have a consistent set of procedures and expectations that directly lead to student success.
2. You Impact and Change Lives
From the moment you join Foundation Academies, your impact is immediate. Our students and families love their teachers, and together, they work to give their kids every opportunity available. The data shows us that it works. By their senior year, every single student is accepted into a college or university.
3. We’re a FAmily
It’s not just business, it’s personal. When you join our team, you become part of the family. We want to know YOU, and we’re committed to helping you succeed and grow every step of the way. Why? Because you matter.
4. We’re Growing, and so can You
As an organization, we are constantly looking for ways to improve and grow. That’s what we want for you, too! We develop and support our staff members so they can grow in whatever ways they wish, whether it be through their current position or in obtaining leadership positions.
5. We Take Care of Our People
Competitive salary. Full benefits. Access to technology and resources for development. We want our staff members to know that we care about them and value their hard work and dedication.
6. Our Kids are AWESOME
We oftentimes hear teachers and staff talking about how great our kids are, and that’s because it’s true! Our kids consider Foundation their second home, and the staff members here are like a second family. Hugs and smiles first thing on a Monday? Talk about a great way to start the week!
7. Freedom of Choice
We’re not about textbooks and forced curriculum. We know that our teachers have expertise, and we’re not afraid to let them use it! We provide resources for curriculum and instruction, but we also encourage teachers to find ways to make the teaching “their own.”
8. Your Voice Matters
When we say we want your feedback, we mean it! At Foundation Academies, it doesn’t matter what campus or team you support -- your voice matters. We consistently seek out feedback and insight from our teams, and we work hard to implement changes that improve our community and culture.
9. We Walk the Walk
What we say, we do. From the top down, there is an expectation that our staff models the core values of caring, respect, responsibility, and honesty. We show our kids what those core values mean through our words and actions.
10. We’re Here to Stay
The NJ Department of Education has ranked Foundation Academies as a Tier 1 school. We rank in the 70th percentile of all schools in the state of New Jersey - traditional and charter. We believe in quality over quantity, which means we work hard each year to build and sustain a model that will last for generations to come.
