Helping MFAA Seniors Find A Pathway
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.
