In an educational community that honors and embraces diversity, Foundation Academy students are prepared with a foundation of faith and strength of character that inspires them to lead and impact the world for Christ. Through intentional Biblical teaching and personal faith, our mentoring faculty teach students not what to think, but how to think. Students are purposefully challenged and skillfully guided to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to stand on and defend their faith. Through community service they also learn the importance of giving back to the community and civic responsibility. This truly is an education with a higher purpose, where students receive an education that will enable them to meet the academic and spiritual challenges of a diverse global society.
One key to accomplishing this aim is offering a weekly Chapel service at both the Lower and Upper School Campuses. The ministry team at Winter Garden’s First Baptist Church partners with our Lower School principal to share engaging and age-appropriate messages for our younger Lions, while Foundation Worship’s Campus Pastor Ken Mann oversees the Upper School Chapel messages. Both campuses offer student-led worship music and dynamic teaching with an emphasis on student involvement. This makes for a peer-to-peer, relational experience for our students.
Foundation Academy’s theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Community.” Chosen by the Student Government Association, they are ready to inspire their classmates of all grades to come together as one student body and one family to build each other up as the body of Christ. They have chosen Romans 12:4-5 as their verse of the year: “Now as we have many parts in one body, and all the parts do not have the same function, in the same way we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another.”
