“As we enter our ninth school year, I want to thank our teachers, staff, parents, and students. Thank you to all of the parents who entrust your most valuable asset, your children, to us! Thank you to our students--our school would not be complete without each and every one of you! You make our school the Best Charter School in New Hampshire,” said Dean of School, Cassie Hayes.

“Our mission statement is a constant reminder of who we are as a community and what goals we are striving to achieve. We are the leaders of our future, we demonstrate good character, we value the lessons of the past, we honor the great men and women of history, and we celebrate the liberties our country has given us,” said Dean of Students, Andrew Mihaly.

The Founders Academy is a public charter school for students in grades 5 through 12 that is free and open to all New Hampshire residents. 

The Academy develops leaders who understand and apply the lessons of the past, demonstrate exceptional character and lead by example. The Academy recognizes the importance of balance in the development of the whole person, and respects each student's journey.

Principled leadership is fostered by means of a curriculum of classical studies that includes analyzing the lives of great men and women of history, mining the rich classical ideals of the Western tradition, and tracing the evolution of the precious and costly idea of liberty.
