Mission Statement

The Foundation is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to supplement creative, meaningful, real-world experiences for students in the West Chester Area School District.

Description

The WCAEF is an independent non-profit organization created October, 2010 to attract private resources exclusively for the benefit of students and staff in the West Chester Area School District. The Foundation will help ensure our schools retain their top-notch reputation by providing enhancements for students to prepare them for college and careers.

The content of the curriculum, where practical, will connect our students to real-world applications of knowledge and skills which should help students understand the connection between what they're learning in the classroom and their future. Connecting curriculum to real-world experiences engages and excites students preparing them for college and careers in the highly-competitive workplace. Students benefit through collaborative learning and problem solving in the workplace, the possibility of earning while learning, and working with professionals in their career area.
