    At Foothill, we understand the importance of providing an excellent educational foundation, especially during the early formative years. Our mission to provide a safe, nurturing, and inclusive community while emphasizing academic excellence and character remains at the heart of our programming and curriculum.

We look forward to learning more about your family throughout this process.

    The Foothill community continues to provide our comprehensive program to the students and families we serve. Our incredibly dedicated faculty and staff are invested in the educational and emotional wellbeing of our students. The focus remains on engaging and challenging our students while helping them grow in their academic, social/emotional, and interpersonal skills.

We will be providing many opportunities to visit us in-person and virtually to hear more about our school and excellent educational programs availble to our students. There will also be opportunities to hear form our Head of School, Division Directors, teachers, students, and parent community.
