What About the Commonly-Asked Question: “What if a Student Doesn't Want to Attend a Traditional 4-Year College?
We believe that our students deserve to take their rightful place at college campuses nationwide.
- It is our role and responsibility to support and assist our alumni in overcoming structural barriers that threaten their path to opportunity.
Our ultimate goal and measure of success K-12 is to ensure that all our students are prepared with the knowledge and skills to obtain their college degrees.
- To support our alumni as they take their seats at the table and become the leaders that will make a positive impact in our community and world, we must continue to provide resources that help them navigate and rise above systemic inequities that exist in our society.
We believe that a quality education provides access to opportunity.
- As educators, we believe that it is our responsibility to prepare all of our students for the nation’s finest colleges so that we may ensure that our students are able to make “best match” decisions when they graduate from Foundation Academies.
While we know that not every alum will choose to pursue post-secondary education, that decision is one to be made by the STUDENT (together with their family), not us. College acceptance provides access to that opportunity.
