The mission of Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy is to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and work habits that enable them to reach their full academic and artistic potential, as they prepare for college and the workforce in a competitive global society.
Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy will provide our student body with opportunities for academic, social, emotional, and cultural growth, in a learning environment that promotes the highest academic standards, provides arts-integrated experiences, and ensures college and career readiness.
Benjamin Foulois is a K-8 Academy whose motto, “Opportunities Abound...Possibilities are Endless”, is indicative of its commitment to excellence. Our school follows the general curriculum guidelines that are used for all Prince George’s County Public Elementary and Middle Schools. Instruction is provided in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies along with specialized instruction in the arts—visual art, drama, instrumental and vocal music, dance, technology, and piano.
In addition, the school is intended to provide an environment for students to develop their intellectual insight, leadership, and sense of community responsibility. Underlying this goal is the belief that sound training and discipline in the arts builds character, judgment, sensitivity and insight important to good citizenship as well as academic and career success. Fundamental to the philosophy is the notion that children learn by doing and performing. We provide as many performance opportunities as possible and provide rigorous, project based instruction as a part of the norm. Additionally, our staff and students are committed to maintaining a strong connection between home, school, and the community.
