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.
