Message from the Dean of School

Dean's Annual Message - July 2018

Greetings!  Welcome to the Founders Academy Public Charter School!
 
At a school whose mission revolves around character-building, leadership, U.S. History and liberty, we are entering a landmark year! First, we are opening a twelfth grade which now completes our grade structure and culminates in our first graduation. Second, we are proud to enter our fifth year of operation. This is a year to celebrate great milestones!
 
The school has grown and accomplished so much since its opening in 2014. Along with the faculty and administrators, I look forward to seeing what the school has become in the new year, and what additional achievements it brings. To date, here are some advancements over five years:
 
• The school’s mission is brought forward through Round Table, activities, and teaching methods;
• The school grows every year;
• Six Academic Departments have been created to work on a rigorous Founding Fathers’ Character and Leadership Curriculum, and subject benchmarks;
• The establishment of a High School;
• Collaboration with Manchester Community College for dual credit classes;
• Overall PSAT and SAT test scores are above state and national averages;
• Advanced Placement courses were introduced into the curriculum;
• Development of successful music, drama, and FIRST  programs;
• Student clubs and activities continue to thrive;
• Development and upkeep of a comprehensive list of syllabi, Program of Studies, and website.
 
Founders works hard to emphasize “the importance of balance in the development of the whole person,” which includes challenging classes, fellowship, and fun. Ours is a vibrant community with great hope for continued progress for many years to come. I consider it the privilege of a lifetime to serve as the Dean to students, faculty, and parents. Have a "celebratory" year!
