Strong Foundations


Certified Excellence

Kids in Preschool


At Strong Foundations Academy, our mission is to provide our young learners with the foundation skills they will use throughout their educational career. Our balanced curriculum teaches children the academic skills necessary to be successful in school and also the emotional skills necessary to succeed in life.

The curriculum at Strong Foundations Academy has been created with our children’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating environment. Our recipe of Spalding, Accelerated Math and STEM combined with Spanish, Art, Music and PLAY ensures we reach and engage all young learners.

Our mission is to increase literacy for our students by using The Spalding Method to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers.
We also implement daily small-group reading instruction with a state certified reading specialist.


The core of Strong Foundations is the belief in hiring high quality educators with extensive classroom experience. All Strong Foundations Academy teachers are state certified to teach elementary school. To ensure your child receives the best reading foundation instruction, SFA teachers also hold Reading Specialist endorsements.
