I love Foothills Academy! The small school environment is perfect for me. I am able to have such strong relationships with my teachers and peers because of the minimized class sizes, leading to a better education and becoming friends with really EVERYONE around me. Foothills feels like a family. Not to mention, the academics are ideal for college preparation. I also love the partnership with our local community college, PVCC. It's rewarding to know that I'm getting some college credits while also earning my high school degree.

Teachers are always there to help students one on one. They are always eager to answer questions and discuss answers with students. Administration always is on top of and will take care of any student related issues immediately. The students really respect their teachers and their peers, too!
Foothills Academy does an amazing job of preparing students for college. They offer dual-enrollment in conjunction with PVCC college where I am able to acquire my general studies requirements for college by the time I graduate HS. Not only does this expedite my degree program, my parent reap the benefits of the cost savings in doing it this way.
