Welcome to The Founders Academy

Welcome to The Founders Academy Public Charter School now in its fourth year!  At Founders, we strive to uphold the school's mission of character-building, American History, leadership skills, and preserving liberty.  The school's themes were established by the school's founders, entrusted to school administrators, and carried out by teachers into each classroom.

From the beginning of every school day to its end, Founders' teachers educate students and develop ways to expound on the school's mission.  This charge starts each morning with "Round Table."

Round Table takes place during "A Period."  It is a time for teachers and students to facilitate discussions on the themes of our school, community and country.  The idea is to mimic the family dinner table conversations (hence the name Round Table) to share, inform, brainstorm, collaborate and question. 

President Ronald Reagan referenced this style of discussion in his Farewell Address when he said, "All great change in America begins at the dinner table."  The concept of Round Table is so central to the school's existence that it is listed first as part of "The Founding Fathers' Character and Leadership Curriculum" and is this year's "theme of the year."
