Five Star Education Foundation - Supporting CTE and District Student Success

Five Star Education Foundation - Supporting CTE and District Student Success

Five Star Education Foundation is a proud supporter of Adams12 Five Star Schools

The Five Star Education Foundation works closely with the Adams 12 Five Star Schools by forging partnerships and raising money to invest in student success. In collaboration with the district and business community, they fund opportunities that inclusively prepare students for a variety of options after high school, ranging from post-secondary education to directly entering the workforce.

The Five Star Foundation focuses on equipping students for future success by investing in proven programs and resources that provide hands-on, real-world experiences. Our students are uniquely prepared to compete and succeed after graduation and they become more ambitious and are more likely to remain engaged in school and be better prepared for the future.

Resources for Students

The Five Star TRAIL is an online career discovery center highlighting Adams 12 Five Star Schools, FutureForward, and more.

Opportunities for training, work-experiences, apprenticeships, internships, leadership development

 The Five Star TRAIL offers opportunities for students to explore Colorado colleges and companies that will help them achieve their career goals.

Career Pathway Fund

These funds will ensure students who cannot afford materials, supplies, and equipment for their career-based classes will have what they need to continue their training. The need is determined between the counselors and the students. The Career Pathway Fund will be co-managed by Adams 12 Career and Technical Education Department and the Counseling Department to ensure that funds are distributed where it is needed the most.

How Can You Help?

Five Star Education Foundation Est 1985 Climbing Higher

Our shared commitment to equity demands that we serve all students according to their needs, no matter where they are. This new way of thinking is embodied in our vision for the big, sprawling five-city community we serve, as a place in which all students are learning ready, career-ready, and empowered to succeed. We know that vision is attainable by working together. Are you with us?

Here are examples of ways to give:

Tribute Gift:  Make a gift in memory or honor of someone or someone’s special occasion (a favorite teacher or administrator perhaps), or to recognize someone that has had an impact on your life or the life of a child.

​Matching Gift:  Many organizations will match employee contributions which can double your impact. Talk to your employer to see if they have a matching program.

​Become a Partner:  Activate your values!  There are plenty of opportunities for your organization to meet its corporate responsibility goals while partnering with the Five Star Education Foundation.  We can help you tell your story.  Let’s talk about how we can work together to meet our goals!

​Be a Five Star Advocate: Like and share our stories on social, talk with your colleagues and friends about the Five Star Education Foundation and the vital work we are doing with your help to build stronger communities.

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
