The mission of Founders Classical Academy is to train the minds and improve the hearts of our students through a rigorous, classical education in the liberal arts and sciences, with specific instruction in good character and civic virtue. This is a high and important calling, but it is also a challenging one. We can realize this calling if all of us, parents and students, teachers and staff, are clear in our aims and joined together by common purpose.
In this work, we have the support of our parent organization, Responsive Education Solutions, which operates over 70 charter schools in Texas and surrounding states. We also work alongside Hillsdale College’s Barney Charter School Initiative, which advises classical charter schools like ours on curriculum and school culture. Hillsdale professors have trained our teachers, and they will work closely with us throughout this year.
