Foundation Academy Wins 2023 “Outstanding Attendance” Accely Award

Congratulations to Foundation Academy for winning an Outstanding Attendance award at the annual leadership summit held this July. Foundation Academy was one of 10 schools across the ACCEL network that achieved an Average Daily Attendance (ADA) of 92% or higher – no small feat in a year where schools nationwide reported high rates of pandemic-related absenteeism.

Recognizing the hard work and success of our schools and school leaders is an important tradition at ACCEL Schools. While schools across the country are still recovering from challenges related to the pandemic, we have seen a surge in success from schools serving historically underrecognized communities.

“We are mission driven to make quality education available to all children regardless of geographic location or life circumstances,” said ACCEL Schools CEO Ron Packard who presented the awards on July 17. “It is an honor to recognize the staff and leadership who are putting ACCEL’s ideals into action and creating positive change in the lives of the students and communities who need it most.”

Congratulations to every member of our Foundation Academy community for contributing to our success in 2023. We are honored to accept this Accely award on behalf of our entire team and look forward to another great school year.


Ready to take the next step and join us?
