Mission

The Allentown School District is the third largest district in the state, with 17,962 students and 1,314 teachers. Statistics in recent years have shown that approximately 66% of Allentown students graduate high school, 97% are considered low income and 100% receive a free school lunch. Our founder Rebecca West, as a K-12 Allentown graduate and teacher, clearly remembers hearing more than once that pursuing college wasn’t realistic due to financial restraints. The Crowns for Kids Scholarship and Foundation exists to help annually fund an Allentown student’s higher education; whether it be a four-year institution, technical school or community college. We are a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization operating out of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. Please visit our latest news page to find out how you can help fund this worthy dream.
