K-8 Academics


Curricula & opportunities designed with intention.

Confident & socially oriented.

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.

Our Graduate Profile

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.

Information & Resources 

The development of a strategic curriculum for New Foundations focuses on ensuring continuity of academic rigor and student growth throughout our K-12 programming.  

Based on the outcomes outlined in our Graduate Profile, our K-12 curriculum articulates and implements a vision and system for teaching and learning that is intentionally interdisciplinary and is standards based.  No matter the age, gender, race, or capability of a student, the academic experience is designed to be engaging, relevant, community driven, and centered around preparing students for a successful post secondary path.  

Starting in kindergarten, students participate in cross-grade level elective classes, which offer a variety of subject areas. These classes allow students in grades K-8 to explore and discover new interests, such as the arts, sciences, and even entrepreneurship. Special programs such as Buddies and Community Meetings allow students the opportunity to collaborate and work through personal or academic obstacles with peers, teachers, and other members of the school community in a safe and supported way.

TODAY I WILL CARE. 

I WILL CARE FOR MY CLASSMATES AND MYSELF. I WILL CARE FROM MY SCHOOL AND MY COMMUNITY. I WILL STRIVE TO BE THE BEST STUDENT. I WILL BE RESPECTFUL, HONEST, AND FAIR TO THOSE AROUND ME, IN AND OUT OF SCHOOL

I WILL WORK TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY AND HELP MY CLASSMATES WORK TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY. I BELIEVE I CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING IF I GIVE IT MY FULL EFFORT AND ENERGY. I WILL WORK TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
