Foley is a tight knit community through and through. The hospitality of everyone is always amazing and the small town feeling never goes away. As a current high school senior in Foley, the connection of the community to the schools is outstanding!

I have lived here my entire life and wouldn't really trade living here for anything. The atmosphere around the town is nice, the people here are amazing as long as you meet the right ones, and the sights around the town are amazing and something that is worth seeing!
Foley was a very close community, that looked out for one another. Growing up as a child I was active in public sports and also once in high school I played four years of soccer. However, the soccer community within the community is not as strong as other sports. I would like to see new sport-splex utilized for camps and tournaments more frequently. Most of all fields should be opened to the public, so that people may utilize for pick up games. This would thus strengthen the soccer community within Foley creating more opportunities for competition, so players would improve their skills.
