School Updates

September 9th, The Foundry had our evaluation for Lower School Accreditation. Dr. Decotis said his recommendation to the Committee is Accredited with Quality for the next four years. This is a great accomplishment for a first-year school! We are so proud of our Headmaster, Mrs. McCully, Lower School Principal, Dr. Kasinger, and all the staff who helped make this possible!

Student Photo Day is now scheduled for THIS Thursday, September 29!

The Upper School will divide and conquer on outings this Friday. Some will go tour Kennesaw State University, while others will go to Mastermind Escape Room!

Lower School will go to Freebird Farm Friday!

The Georgia GOAL Program is important to The Foundry because it benefits our students so much! Georgia's elected officials had the remarkable vision to pass the Education Expense Credit law to provide families in our state with access to better educational opportunities for their children. Goal values the role of private school communities: GOAL was not created merely to process scholarship applications for a fee and mail checks to parents. By involving its participating schools in the scholarship award process, GOAL has built a level of cooperation and trust with private school communities around Georgia for meeting the financial, academic, and other needs of scholarship recipients and their families. 

 

Did you know that 1/3 of our students in some way receive help from this scholarship? You see a lot of posts being sent out asking for donations, but this is not a donation. This is considered a tax credit; i.e. you're telling the government where to put your tax money. So, we encourage families for this reason to allocate part of their taxes to GOAL, so that many of our current and future students can benefit from it. Applications for the 2023 tax year need to be submitted by the end of 2022.

Expert Teachers

All our classes are taught by industry professionals; faculty who are passionate educators but also working in their chosen specialties.

These teachers' resumes span graphic design, environmental engineering, screenwriting, aviation, and so much more. 

Our students love that all our classes and assignments are relevant to the real world, because their teachers are still part of it.  

The Foundry Difference

Authentic Learning

No standardized tests, no pointless busy work. At Foundry Academy we use project based learning, hold community engagement nights, teach finance skills and entrepreneurship, serve our community, and ensure our curriculum creates college-ready graduates.

Our students also have the opportunity to experience and engage with a huge array of careers in order to find their passions and change the world.

Caring Culture

The Foundry Family is the core of our school.  We understand that successful learning can only occur alongside emotional growth. The Foundry is committed to helping our students to flourish through providing positive role models, student support services, senior student mentorship, a House system, and personal development programs.  Service projects also aid students in seeing their value to the broader community and building self-esteem. 

Testimonials

The Foundry is an answered prayer! Our son wakes up excited for school every day. He is working harder and learning more than ever before. Each day the mission of 'Work hard, be kind, change the world,' is lived! It is a wonderful learning environment where he is supported, encouraged, and expected to do his personal best daily! Love The Foundry and the teachers.
