I love this charter school. I went from a sinking charter school with semi-okay grades because I didn't understand a thing that was being taught on the computer to a classical school which taught the way school should be taught. It didn't just teach me what I needed to survive out of school but how to talk to teachers and formulate relationships with them. Sure, some of these teachers were tough but all of them are willing to help and talk to you to get you to succeed. They expect you to do your best. When Archer games come along its all Harry Potter fun- as we are sorted into houses like the Harry Potter series. Everyone puts in the time to help you exceed including the students as well. Thank you, FCA of Leander!

My experience with Founders Classical Academy has been very helpful in developing a love for learning along with the formation of my character. Unlike many other schools, Founders sets the bar high, pushing its students to work hard and develop them in virtue. The school sets 7 core virtues for us to work on, not only to become great students, but also great citizens. It is our duty to be great citizens, and the school enables us to potentially do so through the curriculum. In learning about the greats through classes like philosophy, we are able to take what they have observed about human nature and government, and form our own ideas. Sometimes, we get to talk amongst ourselves and discuss certain ideas about philosophy or literature. Some of the topics are very interesting, and the discussion can become very lively sometimes as well. The love for learning for the sake itself has made my experience at Founders great, and it's great to be surrounded by others who feel the same way.
Founder's really shaped my education, and I feel as though I owe a large portion of my current academic abilities to the school's teachers and areas of study. The one drawback while I was attending this High School would have to be the overly strict rules. There is a uniform dress code with a formal dress standard on Wednesdays and students are never allowed to access their private cellphones regardless of the time of day. Even lunch time and breaks are off limits with cellphones having to be placed in lockers rather than in bags or pockets on silent.
