Helping The Community

Construction of our new high school, technical center, athletic facilities and performing arts center presents Sanford with a rare opportunity to provide an unparalleled education experience for the Sanford community and greater York County area. Our work will impact every sector in our community. 

One Step at a Time

Public funding for this project is considerable; however, portions of the project need private funding to support infrastructure and equipment. The state does not cover all costs associated with the new school. The foundation is seeking corporate and private partners to provide Sanford with the best educational facility possible. With your help, we can do it!
