Bardstown Foundation
The Bardstown Foundation for Excellence in Public Education was started in 1985 as the first private foundation in the state of Kentucky to support a public school system. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $800,000 from private sources to enhance the educational programs of Bardstown City Schools

Among the Foundation’s many accomplishments are the initiation of the Early Childhood Program for 4-year-olds as the first in the state, financial assistance to expand that program to 3-year-olds, technology grants, math and science  programs, and enrichment programs of all kinds to appeal to a broad number of students during school breaks.  In 2005, the Foundation initiated a program to provide stringed instrument instruction during the school day.  We now have a middle school and a high school orchestra.
 
A recent major investment for the Foundation is its STEAM Academy. Now in its second year, the Academy provides qualifying students in grades 4 - 7 with the opportunity to participate in an immersion program one day of each school week.  The STEAM instructor also provides STEAM activities to all our students in preschool - second grade, introducing them to STEAM concepts through hands-on activities.

Please look through our site for more information about the Bardstown Foundation for Excellence in Public Education, the types of programs we make available to our students, and how you can support our efforts by making a tax-deductible contribution!

If you have any questions about the Foundation, please call Kelly Bedtelyon, Executive Director, at 502-331-8860 or e-mail her at kelly.bedtelyon@bardstown.kyschools.us.
