Our Mission

Since its founding in 2007, Friends of Albert Einstein Academies (FoAEA) serves as the fundraising arm to both the Albert Einstein Academy Charter Elementary School (AEACES) and Albert Einstein Academy Charter Middle School (AEACMS). By providing financial support for a variety of supplemental programs including art, physical education, and music, FoAEA strives to supplement the Academies international, multi-lingual focus and develop respectful, responsible and caring citizens of a global community.


Thank you all for your support! Our work here isn't done! If you missed your opportunity to donate or you're inspired by the urge to donate more to our Turf Special Appeal -- here's your chance! Log into https://aeagala2019.ggo.bid to place your donations today! No donation is too small! For more information, please e-mail turfappeal@foaea.org.


All parents, teachers, and staff of AEA are members of FoAEA. We welcome your input and feedback and encourage participation from everybody at our board meetings.

Join us for our next Parent Teacher Organization Meeting in the MPR at the Middle School campus on Thursday, April 11th. Bring a bottle of wine and a friend to share it with. We will be discussing board vacancies and board nominations.

Meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month from 6 - 7PM alternating between the Elementary School and Middle School campuses.

Throughout the year, there will be a number of events in which you can volunteer your time and effort for Friends and the school. It's the parent participation and volunteers that really make our events such a success. Please sign up for our volunteer pool and be sure to bookmark this page to keep updated on future volunteer opportunities.
