Helping MFAA Seniors Find A Pathway

Our Scholarships:

A 501c3 Organization

Established in 1997 as:

A.N. McCallum High School

Creative Learning & Career Advancement Foundation

dba:  McCallum HS Foundation



Since 1997 the McCallum HS Foundation  has sought ways to better prepare students for success after high school. Since 2008 those efforts have focused on scholarships for outstanding Seniors of the Fine Arts Academy.

Since 2009 we have annually awarded scholarships to one or more Seniors graduating as Fine Arts Majors from the McCallum Fine Arts Academy.

To date $33,000 has been awarded.

Created in 2008, this scholarship honors Ms. Ruth Denney (1914-2007),UT Distinguished Professor Emeritus, founder of Houston’s High School of the Performing and Visual Arts, a member of the ACE Advisory Board, and a charter member of the McCallum High School Foundation.

Created in 2020, this scholarship honors the dozens of people who were involved in the
Academic Achievement + Creative Excellence Program that preceded the McCallum Fine Arts Academy.
