  • The Foundation programs are designed for school aged children through adults and offer opportunities that would otherwise not be available for second education, developing new skills, or building community connections. Check out our amazing programs below!

  • Star Student and Star Teacher Star Student and Star Teacher

    Each year, in partnership with the PAGE Foundation, we recognize one high school student who scored the highest on their SAT. That student then gets to recognize the teacher they believe had the most impact in their education. This event is an annual favorite, especially surprising the teachers with the designation of Star Teacher. Student, parents, teachers, and faculty are invited to attend the Regional Star Banquet in Macon for a delicious dinner and another opportunity to honor the dedication and hard work of the Star Student. 

  • Star Reader Star Reader

     

    The Star Reader program is designed to recognize the highest reading score along with the highest gain in reading in elementary school students. We recognize 2 winners from grades 2-5 in each of our elementary schools with a certificate, a gift and a cake and ice cream party! Who knew reading could be so sweet?
