After Foote

Students leave Foote with a globally inspired education and a sense of having contributed to a community that valued them and supported their journey from childhood to young adulthood.

Foote alumni enjoy a high degree of academic success and involvement in student life. Our graduates include playwrights, scientists, journalists, college presidents, restaurateurs, judges, athletes, engineers, diplomats and more.

My Foote education has helped me immensely throughout my life. It helps me recognize my options. It allows me to think critically. It has shaped and influenced my view of justice and equity. It gave me an inclusive view of the world, a comfort with expression and speaking truth to power. Some of these things were immediate for me and some I did not realize until much later in life.
