"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity; he will continue the learning process as long as he lives".
Foster Academy ignites the "spark of genius" in every child by crafting a personalized journey for every student based on his/her interests, talents and passions. We believe that every child has infinite creativity, deep and varied personal passions, and unlimited capacities to change the world. Here in our school, the children are not only taught to be kind and respectful, but they are also stimulated intellectually and artistically. Our school offers a holistic approach in which the various aspects of a child's development are embraced and nurtured.
Our mission is to educate children to be thoughtful citizens of a democratic society by providing an education that is investigative, reflective, encourages choice and expert responsibility and discipline in all areas of learning and social behaviour. An integral part of our mission is to work with students to create a positive, socially and emotionally supportive community because we believe that students learn best when they feel that they are in a safe place where they feel known and where they will be treated with kindness & respect. We don't use tests to determine a child's gift and abilities; we use our innate understanding of children as we observe and support them. Treating each person as an individual giving them freedom to work is a challenge, yet we believe in this core practice.
Our motto is to foster educated, responsible, humanistic young leaders who will spark renaissance in the world. Our biggest challenge is to be better than we were last year, better than last month, better than last week & better than yesterday. In a time of intense and competing demands, we are holding tight to our commitment to a rich & well-rounded arts & cultural enrichment program to complement our rigorous academics.
