The Upper School Day at Foundry Academy

The world is changing at an incredible rate and, in response, the Upper School at Foundry Academy offers an extraordinary educational experience to prepare students to face their future with passion and perseverance.


At Foundry Academy we work with a unique structure:

Days 1 - 4

Academic Classes

8:00 a.m - 3:30 p.m

Classes are taught using a block schedule running approximately two hours per class. 

This allows time to deep-dive into topics, work on projects, and perform experiments.

Day 5

Friday Project Day

8:00 a.m - 3:30 p.m

On Fridays students are usually off campus exploring nature, engaging in major projects with community stakeholders, or supporting our community through service work.
