Foundry College Vision and Mission
Foundry College believes that when we empower students with a practical, relevant and accessible education, they will develop into capable, knowledgeable and accomplished citizens who will thrive in the 21st century.
To provide working adult students with an education that aligns skills and knowledge with the jobs of today and tomorrow. This mission means that Foundry College provides low-cost, accessible and effective instruction to students in a degree-granting program; this program is Mastery Based, ensuring that students master the material they need to graduate and obtain a first-rate job.
Foundry College Values
We believe that pedagogy should be rooted in the science of learning and that educational innovation must be ongoing in order to meet the changing needs of today’s and tomorrow’s students.
We believe that putting knowledge into action through frequent, interactive experiences strengthens learning and ensures comprehension.
We believe that purposeful instruction, broken into practical and immediately useful components, provides students the tools they need for future success.
We believe that respect is a crucial component of any community and requires a learning environment that celebrates diversity of thought, action and purpose.
We believe that intelligence can be cultivated—and that anyone can learn and internalize effective ways to acquire and apply knowledge and skills for a better life.
We believe that success is measured not by one’s current state but by one’s end state—so we strive to support our students to achieve their goals today and in the future.
Working adults need an education that provides a direct path to long-term economic stability — and their employers need skills that deliver immediate on-the-job value. Foundry College bridges the gap between school and works to ensure that every student graduates with the cognitive and emotional tools they need to be successful in the 21st-century workplace.
