Our Projects

Scholarships

The Shelton Academy Education Foundation gives scholarships to families with limited economic resources who believe in our distinctive education for their children. We support all students through a mentoring program and an interdisciplinary approach focused on the formation, which enriches their academic experience and personal growth.

MINDS

Marvel. Illuminate. Notice. Dream. Share.

MINDS is one of our Signature Programs that focuses on human anthropology designed to grant our students the opportunity to learn how civilization and expression of its culture are interconnected with art history, music, and architecture. MINDS has been created in collaboration with the Prado Museum and the Museum of the University of Navarra in Spain.

The objective of this program is to foster the love of art and culture through interesting and dynamic classes that have been strategically adapted to fit each grade level appropriately. The history of art will be reinforced through projects made by children using their creativity and imagination. The curriculum for this initiative has been awarded by the Prado Museum and adapted specifically for Shelton Academy.

The Foundation is honored to sponsor this program and all of the expenses derived from this activity.

MIA Special Needs Center

Last September 4, Mia Escobedo passed away due to a respiratory failure, after battling like a warrior. This beautiful girl was 6 years old and although she was born with a special condition of spina bifida, she always had a smile on her face, touching the hearts of thousands of people who had the pleasure of meeting her. She taught us to appreciate the small things in life; to be grateful and give love to everyone.

Shelton Academy Education Foundation, together with her parents, family, and friends, is raising funds to develop the MIA Special Needs Center, a place where children with difficulties can study in an environment of love and integration according to their rhythm and abilities. With a team of specialists, we will be able to provide to our students a safe environment filled with fun and opportunities!

Help Shelton Academy build the MIA Special Needs Center, a step to make this a more inclusive and loving world. 

Remember your donation is tax-deductible. We will send a Donation Acknowledgement Letter for tax record purposes. Thank you again for your generosity!
