Educator Grants

The Warhawk Academic Boosters are pleased to continue the Educator Grant Program and have designated $2000 each year with two $500 grants designated for each semester to assist teachers in funding projects that align with our mission to: Promote and support all areas of student achievement, improvement, innovation, creativity or service in recognition that all such areas have a positive impact on the overall learning environment at Westerville Central High School.

We want to be sure that every Central High School teacher is aware of our Teacher Grant Program and that every teacher has the opportunity to take advantage of it. We welcome any suggestions you may have.
