Our Mission

The Scarborough Education Foundation (SEF) is an independent, non-profit organization of community volunteers whose mission is to enhance academic excellence in Scarborough public schools by funding innovative and creative educational programs and initiatives that fall outside traditional school budget considerations. SEF funds programs that fulfill the vision of our best educators, stimulate creative thinking and instruction and provide unique learning opportunities.


“In times of change, the learners will inherit the Earth while the knowers will find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists”. - Eric Hoffer
