Foundation Academy Elementary

Building a Strong Foundation

In 2023, FA merged our Primary and Intermediate schools
into FA Elementary, serving scholars K-5.

This new structure provides scholars a solid academic foundation,
confidence in their dreams, and a path to achieving their goals.

About Foundation Academy Elementary

In FA Elementary School, we know our young scholars by name and greet them with hugs and high-fives.

From kindergarten through second grade, classrooms are co-taught by two highly qualified teachers to provide plenty of one-on-one opportunities for growth and modified instruction.

Scholars in third through fifth grade apply their skills to explore new topics, think critically and communicate their ideas. Enrichment programs expand their horizons beyond the classroom, through clubs, sports, and community partnerships.

FA Elementary sets your child on a clear learning path, from knowing the alphabet to reading, from counting to calculating.
