About Us

Shelton Academy Education Foundation

The Shelton Academy Education Foundation (SAEF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Our Mission is to reach and serve the community with a high-quality education and a well-rounded spiritual formation. Additionally, the Foundation helps with the promotion, development, and financing of the activities at Shelton Academy, the first independent Catholic school in the City of Doral, Miami-Dade County.

The support for Shelton Academy is based on providing scholarships, and funding for infrastructure, technology, and new research endeavors.

We strongly believe that an education rooted in faith, as well as intellectual challenges, is vital for the development of a child’s emotional and physical growth.

Our approach at SAEF is to help offer the best option for families who seek a world-class education infused in the values of the Catholic faith. Our success comes from the generosity of our founders, families, alumni, staff, and institutions that understand the value of faith-based education and the impact it has on the community at large.

The Foundation actively collaborates in the consolidation of the great project for the Shelton Family: The new headquarters for the Shelton Academy in which more than 450 students will be able to serve for the next academic year 2021-2022, in the first stage, with the possibility to grow in the second and third stages to 1,300 students in 5 years.

For the new Shelton Academy headquarters, more than 60 classrooms have been planned to conduct face-to-face education, as well as technology for online master classes given by academics located anywhere in the world. There have also been spaces for scientific laboratories, a plastic arts center, a theater that will receive the newly founded initiatives: orchestra, choir, performing arts, and cinema. Sports facilities such as a swimming pool, basketball court, volleyball, soccer, squash, and a gym have been included.
