Foundation Academy Expands to Meet Demand

Atlanta, GA. (Mosaica Education, Inc.) March 8, 2011 – Foundation Academy is now the largest, fastest growing charter school in Richland County.  Foundation Academy opened in 2007 to 144 students and now serves more than 300 Kindergarten through 8th grade students. With enrollment swelling, the academy is adding seven additional classrooms to serve 75 additional students. This will be the second time the school adjusts its classroom walls to make room for its growing population. Last spring, the school community moved from a smaller facility to a larger building on Wyandotte Avenue to meet the enrollment demand.

JoAnn Hipsher, the Chief Administrative Officer at Foundation is very excited about the growth. “We continue to grow,” Hispsher said. “I think parents and students are drawn to us, in part, because we have a good curriculum that includes integrated social studies and humanities.”

The construction for the building expansion is scheduled to be complete in mid-April; a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in May.
