In 1985, when the Foundation was started, the Board of Directors' first project was to raise money to help establish the Bardstown Early Childhood Education Center for four-year-olds. At the time, the Early Childhood Center was the first preschool of its kind in the state to be a part of a public school system. Then, the Foundation also helped establish the three-year-old program.

The Foundation was there for Bardstown students by helping fund technology when having computer labs to accommodate an entire classroom of students was just a dream.

When the school system moved to a year-round academic calendar, the Foundation stepped up to provide funding for enrichment classes during breaks from school. And, the Foundation started a Strings program in 2005.  Now in its 12th year, the Strings program is thriving with both middle and high school orchestras.

After a three year commitment to a STEM Initiative for the district, the Foundation took the next step in this process and established a STEAM Academy in 2016.  Qualifying students in grades 4 - 7 spend a full-day at the Academy immersed in hands-on activities.  The instructor of the STEAM Academy also provides outreach activities for all students in our Early Childhood Education Center and for students in Kindergarten - second grade at our Primary School. 

From science to social studies, from music to math, from technology to team-building, the Bardstown Foundation for Excellence in Public Education continues to fund projects, both large and small, in all our schools!
