Staying Connected

Here are a few resources that are designed for you to stay connected.


RenWeb/FACTS

As an enrolled family, you should have your RenWeb Parent Login information. Students in grades 6 – 12 will use their own student accounts to access RenWeb (student login information will be provided by the IT department).  Once the school year begins, on RenWeb, you can find up-to-date information during the year regarding class schedules, class information, homework, attendance, and a family directory. Teacher email addresses are also listed. 

Official School Emails

You will be emailed directly by teachers and/or staff for specific information as it relates to your student.  Official school emails are sent from communication@foundationacdemy.net and are the main means for communicating important information in a timely manner. All parents/guardians are added to the FA email list based on the information provided in their Family Portal. Visit RenWeb via our website to make updates to your family’s profile and make sure you receive those important emails. 

The Keystone Newsletter

For important school-wide announcements and information, we share that weekly in our Keystone Newsletter, sent out each Thursday. Subscribe and feel free to invite other family members to subscribe as well.

Social Media

FA uses several social media sites to help keep families informed about what is happening on campus. The sites are primarily used to provide reminders for upcoming events, photos of students, faculty, and families, student accomplishments, and daily school happenings.

Before attending school, all FA students are required to submit certain documents. To collect these documents, FA utilizes a system called Magnus. To access your required forms and submit those forms, please visit the Medical tab in RenWeb, select the Magnus option, and follow the directions to log in. Once you have logged in, you will answer a series of questions that will determine the forms you are required to submit. Additional directions and assistance have also been emailed to you upon enrollment. Please visit our Parent Training Video Library for more information about how to use Magnus.
