What People Say About the Foundation…

“As a result of the foundation’s investment in the College and Career Centers, more of our students are gaining admission into their first choice colleges.”

– Dr. Jeff Harding, MVLA Superintendent

“The Foundation has allowed our high schools to maintain the best possible learning environment for all of our students… We would not be the schools that we are today without the support of the MVLA Foundation.”

– Wynne Satterwhite, LAHS Principal

“On Naviance I could see what GPAs and test scores it took to get into to each college, and I created a list of schools realistic for me.”

– MVLA High School Foundation Student

“Smaller classe sizes enable teachers to spend more time with each student and better cater to multiple learning styles. We can build personal rapport and help our 9th grade students as they mature and adapt to the demands of high school.”

– MVLA High School District Teacher

“The Tutorial Center has really been my daughter’s lifeline in honors and AP chem. Thanks!”

– MVLA High School District Parent
