Our Philosophy

Arlington Education Foundation fills the gaps in education by funding programs that help our Arlington Public school K-12 Students by raising and managing funds to support special projects that promote excellence, enriches education and provides resources for students and future students. 

Our History

 The Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) was established in 2002. At the time the Arlington School District was building a new high school and was unable to completely fund a Performing Arts Center (BPAC) on the campus. Motivated members of the community had a vision and formed the AEF with the goal of raising $2.5 million to match the $2 million spent by the Arlington School District constructing the shell of the PAC.
