Our Students


Constructing the path of tomorrow today.

Success is subjective.

At New Foundations, our students learn the life skills they’ll need to make knowledgeable choices, while creating their own paths.

In response to encouraging kids to be confident and socially oriented citizens, a team of teachers, staff, and parents developed the NFCS Graduate Profile which articulates the competencies and skills all New Foundations students must learn during their time with us. 

Our students are leading tomorrow today. It is our responsibility as educators and mentors to help our students build sturdy foundations of academic understanding, social awareness, and emotional well-being.

All new New Foundations Charter School Uniforms can be purchased at DiGulios on Frankford Ave.

Gently used uniform pieces are available from our "Uniform Closet" for a deep discount. Please contact the corresponding building's Administrative Assistant for more information. All students are encouraged to donate any gently used uniform pieces they no longer wear to our “uniform closet” to support other families.

Please note the following updates to our uniform policy for the 2021-22 school year:

K-8

  • Kindergartners are encouraged to wear their gym uniform everyday. While they may wear their school uniform (polo shirt with khaki bottoms), it is preferred that they wear their gym uniforms daily.

High School

  • Ties are optional 
  • Students may wear any solid colored belt without any designs or ornaments 

High School Teachers will provide supply lists specific to their courses at the start of the semester.

It is recommended for all students to bring a copybook, binder, folder, loose leaf paper and pens/pencils with them on the first day of school.

Meal Pickup During Remote Learning
Pre-packaged breakfast and lunch will be offered for takeaway on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12-4pm at the High School Gym beginning on Tuesday, September 8th. This service will be offered through Maschio's, the same company that provides our food service on campus during the school year.

Meal cost will be based on free or reduced lunch status. Families who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch can purchase meals at full price. A student ID card or ID number, which can be found next to the student’s name in PowerSchool, is required to pick up meals. Parents and/or students are able to pick up meals for a few days, or for the entire week for every New Foundations child in their household. Families are also able to pick up meals for other families, as long as they can provide those student(s)'s ID numbers. Please remember to wear a mask and maintain social distance when on campus.

For those families who will need to provide payment, payments will be accepted on-site or online at scholarconnect.com. For questions regarding student food balances, please contact Amy O'Neill for K-8 at aoneill@newfoundations.org and Geri Allmond for HS at gallmond@newfoundations.org.
