"Because of COVID-19, we quickly pivoted to create an in-person learning environment to help the most at-risk students read on grade level."  - Robert L. Hamon, President & CEO


"When I grow up, I want to be a doctor so I can help make sick people better."

Miyona M., The Foundations School Student

"The Foundations School understands that the arts are crucial to creating well-rounded and well-prepared learners and leaders."

Irene Karp, Arts In Education Advocate

"My family and I proudly support CCE because it changes children's lives. Our support is especially important now, as we cannot have an in-person event to raise funds. Underserved children need our help now more than ever."

James Meany, Board Chair

"The school's low student-to-teacher ratio helps me address all my students' needs. Most importantly, no child in a small class ever feels left behind."

John Edouassaint ("Mr. Ed"), The Foundations School
