The power of education to awaken and enlighten children to the possibilities around them drives Helios Education Foundation’s desire to ensure that every student, regardless of zip code, receives a high-quality education. That same desire to spark curiosity and ignite a passion for knowledge drives Helios to invest along the full education continuum – from Early Grade Success through College and Career Readiness, ultimately to Postsecondary Completion. Once broadened, a student’s understanding of the world around him nurtures his dreams, his desires, and often empowers him to give back, leaving a lasting legacy of the transformative power of education.
