Highlights: Congratulations to FA Collegiate Honor Council 

Foundation Academies recently inducted new members of our Collegiate Honors during a white glove pinning ceremony highlighting dedication to “the three Cs” – civility, commitment, and consistency.

Our Collegiate learning community is grounded in the Honor Code, which reflects our learning community's  commitment to character. “We lead by example to be the change we want to see in our community and world at large,” the Code states.

Honor council members are chosen for their leadership and dedication to making a positive impact on our school community, said Faculty Advisor Matt Triolo.

Congratulations to these scholar leaders!
