Shreiner Academy Closing: Invitation to Families and Teachers

The Shreiner Academy closing is an unexpected loss during this holiday season for the 150 families and teachers that called the Shreiner Academy their home away from home. Foundations School in Kennesaw would like to warmly welcome the Shreiner Academy families and teachers to come visit Foundations, a school with a very similar teaching philosophy and community of families.

Families that chose Shreiner Academy chose it for many of the same reasons that families choose Foundations School:

  • emphasis on experiential learning, project work
  • preschool for infants, toddlers, and three year olds
  • Pre-K through 6th grade, multi-age classes
  • open during the school breaks for camp days
  • extended open hours of 6:30am-6:30pm
  • Advanc-Ed SACS-CASI and NAEYC national accreditations
  • curriculum is not religious based
  • natural outdoor areas on campus for exploration acreage
  • located 12 miles from Shreiner, in Kennesaw, near Barrett Parkway and Cobb Parkway
  • no desks–classrooms have a comfortable learning environment
  • emphasis on movement and exploration inside and outside; Foundations has an indoor multi-sport gymnasium that includes gymnastics and rock climbing
  • technology integration with iPads
  • limited homework for students, with majority of content taught and reviewed during school day
  • MAP (Measures of Academic Performance) standardized testing for K-6th grade
  • tuition at Foundations is less than Shreiner Academy

We know this is a difficult time for Shreiner Academy families and teachers.  We welcome you to come visit Foundations School, and we feel that you will find a similar community of people who are passionate about progressive education.  Foundations is open over the Winter Break for tours, except on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so please call us at 770-429-4799 to schedule a tour.
