Sylvania Schools Foundation

As Sylvania Schools grows in enrollment and increases opportunities for students, there is an increasing need to fund district initiatives in a variety of ways, beyond traditional state funding and local taxes. After many years of working independently to fund so many valuable initiatives the Sylvania Academic Excellence Foundation and the Sylvania Schools Athletic Foundation have joined together to become one SYLVANIA SCHOOLS FOUNDATION. The Department of Development and Alumni Relations works closely with the Foundation to provide resources.
We are proud of the many ways we are making a difference for the Sylvania Schools students, staff and facilities. 
STEM -  The Sylvania Schools Foundation is proud to partner with Sylvania Schools for STEM-related (science, technology engineering, and math) education and opportunities for students. STEM is not a one-time educational initiative but an ongoing hands-on approach that integrates complex concepts, critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. Funds through this campaign will provide financial support for additional STEM programming and resources in classrooms.

Student Scholarships
The Foundation awarded $13,000 to the Class of 2017. Scholarships will be awarded later in April and in May for the Class of 2018.
Teacher Grants & Professional Development Scholarships 
Teachers are also supported through the Foundation. This school year we have awarded over $8,500 in teacher grants and professional development scholarships.
