Created to strengthen, enhance and enrich the educational experiences of the Bethlehem Area School District, The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District was established in 1999, under the name Bethlehem Area Education Foundation. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of members of the community working in concert with, but independent of the Bethlehem Area School District. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the learning opportunities for all students of the Bethlehem Area School District. With support from the community, its focus helps educators deliver innovative educational opportunities to students inside and outside the classroom.
