Very simply stated, my kids are now happy to go to school, happy when they get home from school, and are learning more. The FPA environment is healthy and encouraging, providing the right platform for the students' success with FPA's challenging curricula. We now can't imagine school any other way!
Dana Cagle, parent of an elementary and junior high student
Foundation Prep has propelled my daughter from an average student to an academic superstar. She has always been an incredible example of Godly character and has been one of the friendliest people to almost everyone that she has ever met. This school has allowed her to see her true academic potential and the doors of opportunity that are available to her through academic achievement. The teachers and administrators at the school have been so supportive to her directly by helping, encouraging, and recognizing her that it has totally changed her experience of what school means. That combined with the focus of character development and emphasis on a biblical worldview helps develop students into well-rounded people that are properly prepared to go off to college and lead instead of following.
Keith Jones, parent of a high school student
Foundation Preparatory Academy has been a real blessing for all of us, not just our son. We were apprehensive in the beginning, as we had never experienced anything other than public schools. However, concerns over our roles as Co-teachers, and the University Model format were soon put to ease. It is an amazing environment for all. We love the student/teacher relationship provided in the classroom, the direct communication between staff and parents, and the overall expectations the school places on the students. I have seen our son grow in his time at FPA, not only as a student, but as a young man. Confidence builds character, and the confidence he has gained in himself through his education has transformed him into someone I had always hoped he would be. We are very happy to be part of the FPA family, and will continue to be part of the family even after our son is finished. Every child should have the opportunity to experience what FPA offers, both in spiritual character and in education.
Kelly Brooks, parent of a high school student
“Due to the University-Model scheduling offered at Foundation Preparatory Academy, I have been able to spend more time with my daughter as she utilizes her time to its fullest potential.We have such a close connection with the teachers and administration as we partner to help her grow in academics, faith, and character. I know the students will be more than prepared to start college after attending FPA, but more importantly, they will be ready to face the world with a strong faith and moral character. Thank you FPA for making education a positive, happy experience for our family!”
Dawn Daigle, parent of an 10th grade student
“I love teaching at Foundation Prep! I am given the freedom to really teach my students through hands on activities almost every class period and cater to what THEY need in order to understand the concept. I really love being able to pray for and with my students IN CLASS and bring God and Creator into lessons about HIS creation.”
Misty Hankinson, Secondary Science Teacher
"We chose Foundation Preparatory Academy almost two years ago. We loved the idea of sending our children to a school where the building of their character was as important as the building of their minds. The teachers have been amazing. They manage to weave life lessons and morals into each lesson and truly take the time to understand what each of my needs in order to grow into their full potential."
Jessica Boyce, parent of a 5th and 6th grade student
“I remember thinking that when I finally was able to enroll my first child into a great elementary school, I was so relieved. Then, as first grade rolled around I began to wonder if this is where she would always go to school. I wondered if it was because I changed schools growing up, or was God putting a restlessness in my heart for a different reason? We had 3 great years, but my daughter was ready for a change at the end of second grade. She mentioned home school and my first response, was NO WAY. When we heard about FPA, the idea was very intriguing to me and seemed like a good mix of home school and private school. My husband and I attended an info meeting and walked out that night knowing we wanted Sarah to apply.”
“Fall 2015 was our first semester at FPA. The experience has challenged my way of thinking as a mom and as a co-teacher. It took Sarah and I about 4 weeks to get into a good routine and build expectations for what the satellite days would look like at home. She and I have learned how to work together as a teacher and student. I have seen her study skills, language development, writing, and her overall love for learning grow. Overall, FPA has been a great experience. The teachers are available, supportive and encouraging. ”
Mary Mitterling, parent of a 4th grade student
“I love everything about Foundation Prep. As a teacher, I love that parents are a necessary part of the success of their child and that their input truly matters. I love that the faculty cares about every child and that we are invested in each one. I love that the school is continually looking for ways to improve. I really love that the academic standards that form the backbone of this program reinforce a strong student work ethic and prepares them well for college and life.”
Teri McKee, Secondary Math Teacher
“I am doing what God made me to do. The small class sizes allows me to really focus on the individual student and his/her needs from all aspects beyond the academic realm.”
