AURORA ACADEMY RECEIVES AWARD FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS
Aurora Academy is one of 17 schools recognized by the Foundations for Great Schools in 2016. Foundations for Great Schools is a group of private Colorado foundations who have come together to recognize and reward successful public schools (charter and district) serving high proportions of low-income students in metro Denver. The foundation website states “We do this through an annual grant awards program and through sharing of schools’ successful strategies.” Academic growth and performance, and the percent of students who receive free and reduced lunch benefits are the key factors in the selection of schools. Aurora Academy will receive a one-time financial gift of $10,000. The money will be spent to advance academic achievement.
There is no application or nomination process. Annual award recipients are selected from among a 12 school district area within the Denver metro area. Elementary, Middle, High School, Public District, and Public Charter are all considered.
Funding for this grant is provided by four foundations: Anschutz Foundation, Fox Family Foundation, Gates Family Foundation, and the Piton Foundations.
Congratulations to our students, families and faculty for their unwavering dedication to academic achievement.
