School Gets Million Dollars for Scholarships

A private school in Summerlin received a million dollar grant that will help grow its program for high school students.

The Adelson Educational Campus received the money thanks to the Adelson Family Foundation. The foundation gave the money to the campus to expand scholarships for high school aged students.

“Last year we were able to provide over 35 percent of our families’ substantial scholarship assistance. This grant will not only allow us to keep up with that serious demand, but it will also allow us to give the gift of education to many more deserving students,” said Head of School, Paul Schiffman.

The campus received the money because it is one of only three specially accredited private schools in southern Nevada. It also has a previous relationship with the foundation. Plus, the foundation felt the school already had resources in place to use the money effectively immediately.

The Adelson Educational Campus was started in 1980 but has since grown from serving 150 students preschool thorugh 8th grade to a school with 500 students from kindergarten through 12th grade.
