About the Foundation

Helping Students and Their School Grow!

We love Olympus High School with its traditions, values, high academic achievement and focus on community service. These values are important and we want to further opportunities for learning, growth and achievement for both students and faculty. We hope to enhance students’ ability to learn, grow and serve and to reach their full potential as they prepare to make a difference in our society.

Foundation History

The Olympus High School Development Foundation was created in 2004 to promote excellence in all activities of Olympus High School including: academics, technology, drama, arts, music, dance, literature, science and athletics. In addition we hope to foster enthusiasm, school spirit and a sense of unity among students, faculty, alumni, parents and patrons of Olympus High School.

Fundraising Efforts

By pooling the resources of students, faculty, alumni, parents and patrons of the school, funds are raised beyond the normal budgeting capabilities of the school or the school district. These funds provide our community a way to respond to additional needs of student and faculty, to further the academic, artistic and athletic traditions of Olympus High School. Patrons contribute to the Foundation and then faculty members are able to make requests for things they need for their class or team.

Honoring Distinguished Alumni

Scholarships

The Foundation provides at least two $1,000 scholarships every year at the Senior Awards banquet to Olympus students who are the first of their family to attend college as well as twelve $250 scholarships with the Titan Service Awards recognizing the top graduating seniors who excelled in academics, service, athletics, and the arts.
