Read the complete Public Notice

Conveniently located in Manchester, New Hampshire, The Founders Academy is an open enrollment, free (no tuition) public charter school serving grades 6-12. Enrollment is open to all applicants who legally reside in the State of New Hampshire. We are currently accepting applications for all grades for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic year. We’re a vibrant community that serves students from 25 communities in New Hampshire. Let us show you what The Founders Academy has to offer your family!

At The Founders Academy, we pride ourselves in our mission to develop leaders who understand and apply the lessons of the past, demonstrate exceptional character and lead by example. Principled leadership is fostered by means of a curriculum of classical studies that includes analyzing the lives of great men and women of history, mining the rich classical ideals of the Western tradition, and tracing the evolution of the precious and costly idea of liberty. The Academy recognizes the importance of balance in the development of the whole person, and respects each student's journey.
Our curriculum focuses on humanities, mathematics, science, world languages, fine and performing arts, and technology and business
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Founders Academy Open Houses are being conducted via Zoom. Our Virtual Admissions Information Night includes a presentation on the school's mission, information about our rigorous and challenging curriculum, and information about our admissions process. The evening concludes with opportunities to talk individually with teachers and administrators. We hope you’ll join us!
