Providing an incentive for students to complete an academically rigorous program.
The St. Charles Foundation for Academic Excellence was established in 1984 by the St. Charles Board of Education to promote academic excellence in the St. Charles Public Schools.
Contributions and memorial gifts to the Foundation are used to fund its recognition and scholarship programs. The recognition program honors the Student of the Week in both the Elementary and High Schools and sponsors the annual Academic Awards and Recognition Banquet. Each year the scholarship program awards scholarships to those St. Charles High School graduates who have successfully met the academic requirements set by the Foundation. In 2017 the foundation awarded 30 St. Charles High School graduates with a $750 scholarship.
