TEACHER SCHOLARSHIP FUND

THE BHS FACULTY IS RELATIVELY YOUNG AND INCOME DOES NOT OFFER THE OPTION TO BEGIN A MASTER’S DEGREE. HELPING TEACHERS GET THE MASTER’S DEGREE GIVES THESE TEACHERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH COLLEGE LEVEL CLASSES FOR COLLEGE CREDIT TO STUDENTS ONCE THEY GET THE DEGREE. THIS BENEFITS THE SCHOOL IMMENSELY AS THE TEACHERS STAY AT BENSON AND REMAIN IN EDUCATION.

ACTIVITIES SUCH AS CHEERLEADING, SHOW CHOIR, AND OTHER EXTRA CURRICULAR
ACTIVITIES ALL OFFER SUMMER CAMPS FOR ENRICHMENT AND COMPETITION PREPARATION. WITH THJE DIVERSE STUDENT BODY (93% ON FREE AND REDUCED LUNCHES), THE STUDENTS CANNOT ATTEND WITHOUT TUITION HELP. FOR EXAMPLE: SPONSORING A SHOWCHOIR PARTICIPANT IS $600.
