DID YOU KNOW THAT Aspen Education Foundation supports mental health for students and their families through Aspen Family Connections. They also fund intervention specialists who continue to support our students by removing obstacles to their education, and AEF is working with the district to hire another counselor for the Aspen Middle School.
In addition, Aspen Education Foundation funds programs that have become a reliable part of your students’ education; College Counseling, Aspen Middle School’s 8th grade life-changing overnight Outdoor Ed solos, K-12 students Outdoor and Experiential Education trips, STEAM, Aeronautics, Performing Arts, International Baccalaureate, and music programs, programs that help students to learn, differentiate and push themselves in many ways.
Aspen Education Foundation’s vision is that every child in our community has access to an extraordinary public education. All students deserve rigorous academics and a multitude of beyond classroom educational experiences that inspire curiosity and a love of learning.
Aspen Education Foundation champions public education, raising money to fund programs and positions of distinction. In partnership with school administrators and the community, we identify programs that we believe are vital for our students but are not funded by the State of Colorado. We support academics, educators, students, and the Aspen public schools.
