An Environment Where Students Can Flourish Inside the Classroom and Beyond

At the core, we strive to thoughtfully instill in our students a deep desire for personal improvement – academically, spiritually, and through a life of service.

Foothill Preparatory School is a safe space for new ideas, intellectual discovery, and engagement; these pursuits allow our students to thrive inside the classroom and beyond. Our challenging middle school program is supported by our welcoming and inclusive culture founded in Christian beliefs.

We seek to unite our students under a common mission, community involvement, and mutual respect. Central to the character of the Foothill Prep community are integrity, respect, and compassion which are evident in our students’ behavior.

We encourage students to:

  • Live honestly in and out of the classroom, nurturing a community of trust.
  • Act with courage by standing up for what is right and treat others with respect.
  • Take responsibility for their commitments and actions.
  • Develop an understanding and sympathy for the needs of others.
  • Support their peers, working together in harmony.

Our faculty strives to create one-on-one relationships with students, ensuring they are seen and given the tools to find their voice and confidence at a crucial time in their development.

We provide students with the opportunity to serve their community, love their neighbors, and expand their knowledge all through an academic setting that critically challenges students to be better citizens. Every student can flourish with 1:1 personalized support at Foothill Preparatory School.
