Building Vanguard for today and tomorrow.

The Vanguard Foundation, which was established in 1992 as a permanent endowment for the school, will administrate the Distinguished Faculty Scholarship Fund.  One-half of your donation will go to a permanent endowment fund for scholarships and one-half will go for immediate scholarships.

Giving to the Foundation is easy and you have options - 

The Vanguard Foundation gives out two scholarship awards each year – The Distinguished Faculty and the Arminda Bewley Award.

Distinguished Faculty Scholarship Award
The founding of the Distinguished Faculty Scholarship Fund coincides with Carol’s retirement as tribute to her years of dedication. She, however, was not alone in her service. As many have done in the past, current faculty members work tirelessly to uphold Vanguard’s tradition of teaching excellence. Therefore, individual contributions to the Distinguished Faculty Scholarship Fund can be made in honor of any faculty member, whether former or current. Moreover, these contributions need not conform to rigid guidelines or timetables. They may be large or small, and they may be given at any time during the year—perhaps even as a birthday or holiday present for a deserving teacher. We hope that with gifts from you and other generous supporters we will be able to continue to provide the opportunity for students to pursue their academic dreams at Vanguard.
Arminda Bewley Scholarship
Arminda Bewley worked at Vanguard from 1977-2011 and was devoted to students and families. She was the smile at the front desk, testing center, and library and was loved by all. Her patience, character, patriotism, and dedication impacted so many! Through a collaboration with the school, an award with tuition scholarship is given by Arminda's family in her memory to a rising 9th-grader who exhibits, faithfulness to friends, loyalty, positive attitude towards all, respectfulness, and willingness to always provide more on their part with initiatives. To be considered for this award and scholarship, 8th-grade students will need to submit a paragraph.
