What we do

The Five Star Education Foundation is the nonprofit partner to Adams 12 Five Star Schools by funding opportunities that inclusively prepare students for their future and have been doing so for over 30 years.

 

We believe that actions speak louder than words. 

 

Our mission statement, “Invest in Student Success,” is more than dollars: it is the work of harnessing the power of community to shape the future of our students. 

 

We “Mind the Gap” of K-12 education with the outside world. Our areas of practice involve innovation in education, career discovery, learning readiness, and capacity building for Adams 12 Five Star Schools.

Through community partnerships, we ensure that ALL students see their own path to future success.
