The Pharos Foundation understands that the strength of our country is predicated on the strength of our education system, and, when one segment of our population is underserved, all segments of our society suffer. We seek to fund programs and implement systemic changes that will result in access to quality educational opportunities for all students, especially those from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Our mission is to strengthen our country by ensuring all students receive a quality educational experience at an early age and families have the freedom to choose from a variety of educational opportunities throughout their child’s academic career.
