Message from Foundation Academy CEO Sheria McRae

Dear Families and Scholars,

I am proud to launch the 2023-24 academic year at Foundation Academies with each of you.

I look forward to working alongside our staff and families to fulfill our promise to equip our scholars to excel in learning, and empower them to lead purpose-filled lives.

Along with our promise, we share a purpose: to dismantle injustice through education.

Meeting these shared expectations enables our scholars to focus on why they are here…to learn. Side-by-side, we will overcome challenges, celebrate accomplishments and achieve our goals. Let’s do this!

In community and partnership,

Sheria McRae
Chief Executive Officer
