Application Process

Application Process

Our application process helps us to get to know one another better. We want to help you ensure Foundation is a good fit for your family. To do this, we follow these steps with interested families:

1. Visit the School

You and your family should visit the school and have a tour. We also encourage families to consider having their child visit the classroom. If you are interested in having your child take part in a classroom visit, please call the school to make arrangements. The length of the visit is usually one hour to one half day, depending on the age and comfort level of your child. During the visit, the teacher will usually include the child in whatever activity the class is pursuing at the time.

2. Meet the Principal

To help you determine if Foundation is a good fit for your family, we will arrange for an appointment with our principal. The principal will discuss with you the vision and mission of the school. Some of the school's policies and procedures, and it's academic program will be covered. It is also a good chance to ask any further questions that you may have. Children in Grade 7-8 may or may not have a separate interview time with the principal for a few minutes.

3. Discuss and Pray

After this interview we want you to take some time to discuss and prayerfully consider Foundation as the school home for your family. The principal and relevant staff will also be prayerfully considering your application.

4. Invitation to Register

After prayer and consultation, you will be informed by phone and/or email about a decision within a few days.
