About The Foundations School

The mission of The Foundations School at Center for Creative Education is to transform teaching and learning through creativity and the arts.


Our school serves kindergarten through 5th grade. We aim to have all students our grade-level in reading, science, math, and social studies. Our approach relies on project-based learning, regular assessments, and individualized attention for each student.


We offer:

  • Arts-integrated curriculum
  • An emphasis on literacy
  • Small class sizes
  • Highly-qualified teachers and assistant teachers
  • Afterschool programming
  • A creative and loving learning environment


Tuition at The Foundations School is currently $16,500 a year; however, CCE accepts a variety of financial aid in order to make attending our school affordable.

All families qualify and must apply for a scholarship through Step Up for Students. Families must provide CCE with the “Award Number” in order for us to apply these scholarship funds to your tuition.

The “Required Minimum Family Contribution” payment varies per family, as it is based on the adjusted gross income and the number of people in the household. Payment plans are posible provided that it is worked out before the student starts school. Contact the Chief Operating Officer at jerryc@cceflorida.org to inquire about the amount your family will be required to contribute.

If there is a balance due after the Step for Students Scholarship and the Required Minimum Family Contribution, families may apply for a CCE scholarship. If at any time a family is deemed ineligible to continue receiving this scholarship due to violations of the family requirements, the remaining balance must then be paid by the family, or the student withdrawn.

All families must pay a $50 per student registration fee prior to the first day of school. Although this fee is non-refundable, CCE will apply this payment/credit to the Required Minimum Family Contribution mentioned above.

Lunch for every student every day is included in the tuition. Families are welcomed to provide their own lunch; however no credit will be given to families who do so.
