Investing in the Youth of Harford County Public Schools

Harford County Education Foundation (formerly Greater Excellence in Education Foundation) is a 501c3 nonprofit education foundation that recognizes the importance of quality education as it relates to the future residents of Harford County.

Our society depends on students both to master school subjects and to excel in areas such as problem solving, critical thinking, and communication – abilities often referred to as “deeper learning” and “21st –century skills.”  Increasing academic rigor and 21st-century competencies show consistent, positive correlations with desirable educational and career outcomes.

The Education Foundation works to level the playing field with the needed extra supports and resources, so every student is fully prepared.
