Foothills Academy welcomes students with identified Learning Disabilities in grades 3 to 12 who are struggling to succeed in the regular school system.
Many students who come to us may have been experiencing feelings of failure and not fitting it in their current schools. We need to make students feel valued for who they are with all their individual strengths and challenges. When students feel safe and cared for, they are more willing to engage with learning again. Our teachers, educational assistants, support staff and administration work together for the same goals for our students. Students are surrounded by staff throughout the school who truly care about them. Being a school of under 300 students allows strong relationships to form and students cannot go unnoticed and slip through the cracks.
Everything that we do at Foothills Academy has its foundation in our school philosophy which is based on Self-Determination Theory and summarized by this slogan.
"Find Understanding Build Confidence Maximize Potential"
