The Fulcrum Foundation recognizes that our Catholic school teachers and staff are our best resource for continuing a tradition of academic excellence. It was out of this philosophy that the Star Grant program was created and continues to foster the development of outstanding educators.

This year, the Fulcrum Foundation awarded grants of up to $1,500 to 18 teachers and staff members for the implementation of creative curriculum initiatives. Students who participate in many of the projects benefit not only from an engaging presentation of new concepts, but are also encouraged to grow personally in the values of leadership, service, stewardship, and faith.
