Help Us Support AHS Graduates Continue Their Education
We Can Make a Difference with Your Help.


You have reached the home of the Austin High School Continuing Education Foundation.

For a quick overview of our mission see what we do below, and thank you for visiting!

In 1994, Austin High School alumni created the Foundation to help provide educational opportunities for Austin High School graduates. The Foundation is chartered to provide assistance to current students who may be at risk of dropping out of school due to financial hardships. This organization is funded mostly from contributions from individuals throughout our community. Since 2000, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to many deserving students. Students may apply for these scholarships for any number of post high school programs – traditional four-year colleges, community colleges, trade schools or professional training programs.
