Theme Info & Details

Foundation is an educational and academic WordPress theme created by AcademiaThemes. This perfectly proper theme is a great fit for any school, college, academic association or educational institution.

When creating a website for a school or education based business it’s important to highlight the information your readers will use the most. In the case of a school-type website this will most likely be your classes, teachers, events and campus information. Foundation makes adding all of this content and more super easy through the use of page templates. It also looks like they’re using custom post types as well, so adding your staff members, course catalogue, image galleries, teacher or course testimonials and even upcoming events should be as easy as adding a post to your blog.

What We Like About Foundation

We really like everything about this theme. It has great features that educational institutions would need and use. You could easily use this theme to create a website for a school, certificate program, college, school club or even a sports team. The built-in page templates, social sharing and custom widgets make this theme flexible and easy to use.

What Could Be Improved

Seeing as this is an education based site, having a forum of some sort would be a great addition. A forum would be the perfect place for teachers to host conversations on topics covered in class or to post homework assignments. It would also provide a save and easy to use place for students to connect with each other or organize events. You could definitely use bbPress to add this functionality to the theme, but you might have to edit the CSS a bit to make it match the Foundation theme.
