What do Hawks and Cougars have in common? Well, if you’re a Bay City Cougar or a North Central Hawk, you both just revamped your Foxbright website! It’s always a good idea to start the school year off on the right foot/claw/talon, and both schools knew that an update would keep their sites feeling fresh, modern, and easy to use.

With ease of access to website information as a major priority, both schools went with the crowd favorite Kapok Template. Kapok comes packed with useful tools and features like quicklinks, news and newsletters and staff cards with customized profile pages. As an existing client, both schools also knew that a Foxbright revamp isn’t just a fresh website, it’s also dedicated retraining and styling to assist staff in making the most of the new design features. 

Website design isn’t just about getting all the information out there, it’s about presenting it in a streamlined and intentional manner to make it as easy to consume as possible. Like all Foxbright templates, Kapok is designed to simplify and streamline the information your community needs. Completely changing a school’s colors might be overwhelming on your own, but Foxbright makes it easy to show your school spirit on day one. Go Cougars! Go Hawks!

 


 

 Muskegon Maritime Academy

Muskegon Maritime Academy expects excellence from their students and they knew that their website needed to reflect the same high bar. When time is of the essence, Foxbright prides itself in achieving your digital goals, which for Muskegon Maritime Academy, meant getting a brand new website from design to launch in just a few short weeks. ADA Compliance was a key focus of the new site, so MMA went with the Juniper Template for a crisp and accessible homepage. 

ADA Compliance requires lots of detail oriented design work which can be overwhelming for anyone not well-versed in website creation. As part of this particular collaboration, Foxbright manually migrated and updated the Academy’s existing content to ensure that nothing was overlooked. The Muskegon Maritime Academy also chose to use the built in News tab for their school blog posts, a tool they’ve already made great use out of with all the good news coming out of this new charter school!

St. Robert Catholic Schools chose Foxbright’s new Lotus website template to create an intuitive online environment where finding information is quick and easy. The new website accomplishes more and more with less and less, presenting a clean landing page without ever feeling basic. The fresh layouts are also full width and optimized for mobile users which means there’s less scrolling and more responsiveness for folks who need to grab their information on the go. Accessibility and ease are the name of the game, and the new St. Robert Catholic Schools site is both fully ADA compliant and integrated with Google translate to make sure it’s useful for all, regardless of ability or the language they speak.  

With a slate of floating social media features to choose from, upgraded options for exciting photo and video galleries, and easily customizable templates for teachers, Lotus makes it easier than ever for St. Robert Catholic Schools to really shine.
