At Foundations, one of our goals is to help our students accomplish their academic and career oriented goals so that they can have opportunities to be successful, independent individuals.
We provide opportunities through local colleges and businesses in the community to help our students gain the knowledge they need to succeed.
Academic support for Great Success
Students at Foundations have several options for continuing their education. Many chose to enroll in college courses at AB Tech. , which has been ranked the best Community College in state of North Carolina.
Along with traditional college courses, AB Tech. offers courses in culinary arts, paramedic training, firefighting, engine repair, and wood working among others.
For those who are still looking to obtain their high school diploma, we offer opportunities to obtain their diploma as well.
Pairing our students with local business
The traditional college or university path isn’t made for everyone. We understand that. This is why we try to help our students find what interests them in a career path and pair them with resources in Asheville to help them get valuable job experience, internships, or volunteer opportunities.
We may have a student who takes courses at AB Tech, with interest in woodworking, or other trade skills. We will use resources in town to pair those students with internships such as Habitat for Humanity where they can use the skills they are learning to help build homes for those in need. We allow the students to focus on their strengths to find a path for success.
