Home About Us

The Foundation Academy was founded in 1988 by Principal Nadia Hionides. The school’s vision is for learning to be a dynamic, hands-on, and enjoyable process which harnesses and channels a student’s creative energy and adapts to their personal learning style.

Through the principles of faith, hope, and love, TFA encourages the celebration of cultural diversity, the development of critical thinking and the motivation of lifelong learning. TFA offers high-quality and affordable private education for your child.
