The Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) is a nonprofit resource and advocate for students and educators. We drive scholastic achievement in the critical areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by leveraging resources and partnerships to provide innovative academic programs. We are a catalyst for policy solutions in public education in the region. Our mission is it to make Silicon Valley the leader in academically prepared students.
The Silicon Valley Education Foundation is a non-profit resource and advocate for public education in Silicon Valley, California’s sixth largest school system with over 370,000 students and 18,000 teachers. We drive scholastic achievement in the critical areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by leveraging resources and partnerships so all students can realize their full potential.
SVEF’s goal is to make Silicon Valley the number one region in California for students graduating from high school academically prepared for postsecondary success, as defined by the number of students completing the AG course requirements (the UC/CSU minimum entrance requirements). We achieve this via a multifaceted strategy that includes: 1) operating programs that impact students directly, strategically targeting gateway courses, to make sure students stay on course for high school graduation and college success; 2) working directly with school districts to reform policies that are holding students back from achieving their full potential; and 3) working with the business and high tech communities to bring innovative education technology into the classroom, ensuring that students are gaining the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century economy.
