Foundation Academy encourages all our seniors to further their education through post secondary endeavors in four year state or private colleges or in A.A. degrees leading to university transfer to a B.A. or B.S. degree. Other popular choices are A.S. degrees such as Biotechnology or Technical Theatre and certification programs such as Culinary or Automotive Technology. Some students choose to enter one of our military branches. We have a Senior Institute led by Mrs. Nadia and Ms. Anne where seniors develop community service projects and a senior exit portfolio to be ready for graduation and
real life skills.
We visit FSCJ, UNF, JU and other local college campuses, have speakers and go on field trips to expose our students throughout the years to their post secondary options.
In their senior year, students may take the ACT, SAT or ASVAB, TABE or PERT tests, depending on their goals. The ACT or the SAT is required for students to qualify for the Bright Futures Scholarship. Look on their websites for dates of registration and changes in GPA’s and scores between the classes of 2012 and 2014 and beyond. (www.brightfutures.org, www.act.org and www.collegeboard.org)
In January, after the prior year’s income taxes have been filed, students must fill out the federal FAFSA form to receive any scholarships. Foundation has a special scholarship good at FSCJ and UNF called the Scheidel scholarship which is part of the general scholarship application FSCJ offers. Many of our students receive Pell Grants and work-study assistance.
There is a special senior meeting at the end of January for parents who have questions about the process, but should any student or parent have questions before that, Anne Bruno, Academic Advisor, is available for individual appointments in the afternoons. Our graduates have gone on to much success in the past 25 years of Foundation Academy’s existence, being prepared to critically think, innovate and work collaboratively in the real world.
Please call the school and ask for Ms. Bruno should you need assistance in planning with your student.
The Foundation Academy admits any student regardless of sex, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin.
