CHANGE THE WORLD.
...isn't just a catchphrase at The Foundry. These are our precepts, our code of discipline, and the benchmarks we use to hold ourselves and each other accountable.
Strong character is an essential facet of a meaningful life. In order for students to develop into the virtuous leaders of tomorrow, they must be determined to act with honor today.
Intelligence is plastic. With a growth mindset, all students are capable of learning and improving. With grit, gratitude, independence, and self control, their present circumstances can be changed to achieve the future of which they dream.
Students are capable of complex critical thinking and problem solving, becoming stewards of their communities and the world and addressing critical societal and ethical issues.
Students learn best in an environment that breaks down the walls of a traditional educational institution to involve a diversity of subject experts, peers, teachers, and community leaders.
Engagement takes place when learning is relevant to the world around us and academic disciplines are integrated, fostering an appreciation of how they interact and form a whole.
In addition to academic knowledge, a practical understanding is required for future success. For that reason, a blend of relevant project-based learning and expeditions make up the heart of education for all students at The Foundry.
Global interdependence compels us to understand languages, systems, and cultures of people throughout the world.
Literature, music, and the arts are essential, timeless aspects of human existence.
Effective communication is often the only difference between a good idea and a successful initiative.
