At New Foundations, our students learn the skills they’ll need to make knowledgeable choices, while creating their own paths throughout their lives.
To encourage our students to be confident and socially-oriented citizens, we integrate the competencies and skills all New Foundations students must learn during their time with us.
At all grade levels, our curriculum intentionally incorporates service-learning, academic understanding, social awareness, and emotional well-being.
By leading with the outcomes we wish for our students, a working group of administrators, teachers, students and parents developed what is best for our students at every level. From this work, the Graduate Profile was born: New Foundations Charter School’s standard of academic understanding, civic engagement, & emotional wellbeing. The Graduate Profile is our compass - guiding all aspects of our work to ensure NFCS students secure a bright future.
