From Foundation Academy

Voted "Readers Choice for Orlando's Best Private Christian School", in 2018 & 2019 by Orlando Style Magazine.

In 1958 Foundation Academy opened it's doors to the students and families of Central Florida. Our intention was to treat and teach each child as a unique creation in Christ, and partner with parents and the church to build a foundation for life, over 60 years later that still remains true.

Foundation Academy, a K-3 through 12th-grade private Christian school, was founded in 1958 as a ministry of Winter Garden’s First Baptist Church. All grades were housed at the church campus until 2007 when the Upper School grades moved to a new 70-acre property in south Winter Garden. In 2019 a third campus began at the campus of First Baptist Church Windermere, Lakeside campus with a Kindergarten class. The campus will grow a new grade level each school year up through 6th grade. Currently, Foundation Academy serves 900 students in grades K-3 through 12.
