Founded in 1988, The Foundation Academy is a private school in Jacksonville, Florida, whose mission is to educate children using arts integration in a family-like environment, helping each student become a critical thinker, lifelong learner, and grow in knowing that God loves them.
For 20 years we used various buildings in Jacksonville beach. Beginning in 2008 we moved to our beautiful 23-acre campus. This campus has enhanced our family atmosphere through organic gardening, sports fields and playgrounds we continue to build on the foundation of family and acceptance, educating students to their potential and building success from pre-kindergarten through high school.
We understand the reality of differences in styles of learning. We also understand that this world is an integrated environment that overlaps the academic, artistic, emotional, physical, and spiritual components of life. We mirror this integration in our curriculum to prepare students to succeed in today’s world.
The Foundation Academy staff engages in weekly development sessions, where we discuss and plan ways to reach high expectations for each individual learner. We adapt our curriculum to meet student needs, and include world events and issues as they arise. We integrate arts and sciences and connect these to the real world around us.
For 25 years, The Foundation Academy has developed great thinkers and leaders in an atmosphere of warmth and mutual respect. These strong-willed individuals learn to collaborate with others to accomplish their goals. They grow to respect differences and appreciate their unique personal contributions. They go on to college, careers and the military, with the resiliency built from this enlightened school environment. All TFA students learn they have unique skills and talents, and that they are loved by God. As I communicate with many graduates on Facebook I see that they persevere through life’s challenges and carry on with hope and courage.
I am grateful and pleased as owner and founder of The Foundation Academy to be included in the lives of our families. It is a mutually enriching experience. I welcome you and look forward to experiencing great things together.
Please feel free to call and plan a visit to this unique place. I look forward to meeting you and engaging in stimulating conversation.
Principal, The Foundation Academy
