Our Roots

Foxwood Academy was established in 1865 by Gertrude Black. Mrs. Black was a widowed Fox Hollow resident who in her later years of being an educator made the decision to open a school “for the outstanding education and instruction of young boys and girls”. Since the founding of the school, the children of Fox Hollow have received the best education possible under the school’s carefully detailed instructions left behind by Mrs. Gertrude upon her retirement.

Foxwood’s original building was a smaller church located not far from downtown Fox Hollow. It was only a few years before the classes were too large for the church to handle. After careful consideration, Mrs. Black used a portion of her inheritance from her father’s estate to purchase a small mansion near the old church to renovate into Foxwood Academy. With her children grown and her husband in her heart, Gertrude Black dedicated her life towards building and creating the best schooling program for the children of Fox Hollow.

With the establishment of the newly renovated school, Gertrude created four separate clans that each child would be separated into. She designated them by animals she thought had strong traits. Bears who showed bravery, Wolves of great independence, Hares who were creative, and Stags that were intelligent beyond compare. Each clan held its own characteristic traits, and each student would be placed accordingly based on their own traits through a specially designed test. The houses were created to give students a feeling of belonging and show pride for their clan. Each clan has the chance to earn points throughout the months including what is now a field day in which clans can compete against each other to win the coveted Foxwood trophy.

Today, Foxwood Academy continues to hold up the same ideals Gertrude Black set in place and focus on giving current and new students who come into the Foxwood Academy halls the best education and experience possible.

Clans

Foxwood Academy has 4 Clans that students are put into through our personality test. These clans are the Bear, Stag, Hare, and Wolf. Each of these clans has its very own common rooms for their respective clan members to congregate and bond within. Within the common rooms, you can find doors that will lead to house dorms for students who wish to live within the school.

Each clan will have a Head of Clan (Teacher or another staff member) that will oversee the students of the clan, each Head of Clan will have an office located in their given clan’s common room.

Students of other clans can not enter another clan’s common room (Ex. A hare can not go into the wolf common room. Only way realistically would be if a role-play is completed sneaking them in without getting them caught.) Should a student of another clan need to see the head of the clan from another house they will have to meet outside the common rooms in another office or classroom. The common rooms and dorms are open to all students of that respective clan.

Students that live within the dorms must be in their common rooms by 10 PM SLT and must be in their dorm by 12 AM SLT.
