SFCS met our son where he was academically and socially and moved him along at a pace that was both challenging and achievable. To quote his response to my "Have a good day." gesture as he hopped out of the car one morning, “Every day is a good day at Strong Foundations.”

Strong Foundations offers physical education, music, and art to all students. Group instrument lessons, Band, and Chorus, are optional classes offered to grades 5-8. Spanish and Health are offered to grades 7-8. Students may take online courses through VLACS in particular areas of interest.
Enrichment every Friday is a time for students to nurture their gifts and talents and engage in self-directed learning with teachers facilitating the process. Inspired by Renzulli's work with Gifted and Talented programs, students choose a new Enrichment block every quarter and work with their group to identify their learning goals, plan the process, and create a product for an authentic audience.
