Waiakea High School Foundation
The Waiakea High School Foundation was established in October 2004 as a public charitable organization to support Waiakea High School. As a non-profit organization, the Waiakea High School Foundation has acted as a conduit to administer grants to the school which has benefited the students at Waiakea High School. These grants have helped Waiakea High School establish and support the career academies in varying fields and has also helped support the Robotics Program. Learn more»
A financial cross-roads...
Waiakea High School will be at a financial crossroads in 2013 when the Title I funding and consortium grant ends. These funds were used for professional development and to start the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Program for students in the Academic Gap Group. These Gap Group Students are hoping to be first-generation college students and are enrolled in an AVID elective class, which teaches them writing, inquiry, note-taking skills and Socratic seminars. AVID teachers require special training sessions and attend a national conference. Waiakea’s first students in the Avid Program are scheduled to Graduate in 2014.
Keep the program going!
To keep the program going, Waiakea High School needs our help to raise $17,000 for the next school year. We are embarking on a two-prong fundraising effort for 2013-2014, with a goal of $42,000: $17,000 for AVID and $25,000 for the endowment campaign.
Help us reach our goal of raising $42,000 for Waiakea High School for 2013-2014.
We are building an endowment of $250,000 to further benefit the students and programs at Waiakea High School. We have thus far raised approximately $50,000.
