The Foundation has organized programs that cultivate three gardens.
- District-wide Grants
- Scholarship Programs
- Grants for Special Purposes
District Wide Grants are funded by the foundation to support the district’s goals:
1. To improving the academic performance of all students
2. Closing the achievement gap between the highest- and the lowest-performing students
3. Preparing all students to succeed and continue their education beyond high school.
Since 1994 the Foundation has funded programs that have contributed to the excellence of the Cherry Creek School District. Programs funded include AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), Online Learning, the STAR Mentor Program, Summer School Scholarships and Reading Together
Scholarship Programs seed new and broadening educational opportunities for Cherry Creek Students. Here are a few of the Scholarship opportunities the Foundation has funded
The Monte C. Moses Scholarship provides financial assistance for a student to complete a professional teacher education degree at a college or university located in the state of Colorado.
The Kindness Scholarship Program founded in 1997, has served to promote character qualities in the Cherry Creek School District students. The Kindness Scholarship perpetuates kindness throughout the year for middle schools students.
Grants for Special Purposes such as educator Initiative grants are designed to encourage, facilitate and recognize innovative and creative instructional approaches.
