About Foundations Academy (2945)


Foundations Academy


Foundations Academy is one of a hundred charter schools that are operated by National Heritage Academies headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are authorized as a charter school in the State of Colorado by the 27J School District. Foundations is currently in it's 14th year since opening in the Fall of 2010. Over the years, Foundations Academy has experienced increased enrollment with the addition of grades 6th, 7th, and 8th. Each year, an additional class was added - 6th grade in 2011, 7th grade in 2012, and 8th grade in 2013. Historically, Foundations Academy began with an enrollment of 420 K-5th grade students and is now with a special focus on parent engagement and satisfaction, Foundations Academy is successfully serving 769 students throughout the K-8 grades. Foundations Academy continues to grow in it's special populations. Currently, Foundations serves ninety-five students with special education status, eighty-four identified NEP/LEP students receiving English Language Learner services, and there's been an increase in ethnic minority students. We currently serve students that speak five different languages. Additionally, the student demographic data specific to socio-economic status indicates that roughly 36% of the student body is considered to be eligible for free or reduced lunch. The percentage of students qualifying for FRL continues to increase since the start of the school in 2010. Foundations Academy, as part of NHA, has four encompassing pillars; Academic Excellence, Student Responsibility, Parental Partnership and Moral Focus. These pillars encompass our continued mission and vision for the school. Yearly, Foundations surveys all stakeholders. The results of the surveys are reflected in the focus of our UIP. Along with the influence of the surveys, and the foundational pillars of NHA, the staff is instrumental in the identified areas of concerns, and the writing of this plan that is aimed at overall school improvement.
