The Family Foundation School
Gerald Janauer, Ph.D.
The Family Foundation School is a college preparatory boarding school for teens at risk, registered with the New York State Board of Regents and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. We offer New York State Regents diplomas as well as diplomas from The Family Foundation School. The school was first licensed in 1987 and has continued to evolve.
Each student is required to take a college preparatory curriculum. GPA reflects credits earned at other schools prior to coming here; however, class rank reflects only work done here because our students come to us from varied educational backgrounds. We graduate students both in June and December. Our minimum passing grade is a 75; students receive no credit for "D" work.
Over the past several years, virtually 100 percent of our graduates have been accepted to post-secondary institutions: 80 percent to four-year colleges and universities, and 20 percent to community colleges and professional schools.
Standardized Competency Examinations
Students take the PSAT in October of their junior year, and the SAT I the following May and in October of their senior year. Students who wish to may take the ACT as well. Students are sometimes required to take SAT II subject tests, which we use for evaluating proficiencies in certain areas.
