VCS and the Edward E. Ford Foundation Grant for Refugee Students
For the last three years, Vermont Commons School has been the recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation. This grant, and $50,000 in matching gifts, has underwritten a program to create access for three Refugee students to attend Vermont Commons School for the four years of high school and then college. “Many Refugee students are recruited to local colleges on athletic scholarships,” says Head of School Dexter Mahaffey, Ph.D. “Often, however, they are not prepared for the rigors of college academics and end up dropping out. College preparation is what we do here at Vermont Commons School. We joke that our sport of choice, so to speak, is Varsity Academics.”
