Make A Difference in the Lives of Children with Learning Disabilities

Donors make a huge impact on the lives of children with Learning Disabilities through their support. Find out how you can help today!

Foothills Academy Society has been committed to never turning a child away due to their financial circumstances. In order to fulfill this commitment, we need the support of the community to ensure that our Bursary Fund is available to families whose children are struggling to learn due to a Learning Disability.

Each year, our donors and supporters assist approximately 40% of the students at the school with full or partial bursaries to access our programs and services. Additional donations help children access programs through Community Services to help access a psycho-educational assessment, receive one-to-one instruction or participate in our Amicus camps. In total, Foothills Academy Society provided $1 million in bursary assistance. 

A $50 donation can supply a student with digital materials for student learning including library resources for a year of school.

A $75 donation can provide one hour of one-to-one instruction in our Read/Write program.

A $100 donation can pay for one day of school for a student at Foothills Academy. They can access small classes with teachers and assistants with the skills and knowledge to help them become the people they are capable of being.

A $150 donation can pay for one full day at our Overnight Camp where children can learn social skills in a fun, interactive environment.

A $200 donation means that a student can receive a month of bussing to bring them to Foothills Academy school every day to learn in our specialized environment.

A $330 donation can provide a student at Foothills Academy access to a C-Pen - a small device that can provide text-to-speech anywhere a student needs it. It’s a game changing device because students no longer need to wait for an adult to help them access textbooks, paper worksheets, tests or exams and it increases their independence as a learner. 

Make a one-time donation. Or, consider setting up a regular monthly donation and support children with Learning Disabilities on an ongoing basis.

Are you an alumni or alumni parent? You can contribute to the Alumni Legacy fund to build an endowment fund to help future students access the Bursary Fund now and in the future.

When we came to Foothills Academy, it was life changing for our boys as well as our family. Our children felt at ease. They could be exactly who they were and not worry that judgment would be passed. All of their peers had walked a long and difficult road to arrive where they were. The compassion and care that the students had for one another was astounding. The friendships that have developed are stronger than some will ever experience in a lifetime. Their damaged confidence soon healed and began to grow and flourish. — Foothills Academy Parent
