About the Foundation

The Monroe 2–Orleans Educational Foundation supports students who have taken a non-traditional path through their K-12 schooling and who plan to continue on to college or pursue career training.

 

What does this mean? Some students are best served by non-traditional or alternative educational programs, such as special education, career and technical education and high school equivalency or Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™). These programs have offered unique supports for students in meeting requirements for graduation. There are not many scholarship opportunities for students graduating from such programs. The Foundation exists to support these students by providing financial assistance for tuition, continued specialized support and appropriate educational supplies.

we work with, but are independent of,

the monroe 2-orleans BOCES.
