Apply to FA

Our Application Process

We have experienced a record year at Foundation Academy.  We are at capacity in most grades with a priority wait pool of qualified applicants. 

If you are interested in 1st grade at our Plant Street campus or grades Kindergarten or 2nd at our Lakeside campus, we have limited availability (which can change at any time depending on applications submissions) and you may proceed to our application system to complete and submit an application for admission.

If you are interested in any other grade, you may place your student’s name on our waitlist so that you can be notified as soon as we open up applications for the 2022-2023 school year.  This typically occurs in October with our Early Decision applications.  While the waitlist does not guarantee any placement or preference, it does ensure you will be the first to know when we open up for the next admissions season. Click Here to go to our waitlist form. 

You may also wish to consider our new Foundation Academy Virtual Learning for 6th – 12th grades.  Contact for more information.

We suggest you contact our admissions office with any specific questions you may have.
