Grants for Education




Funding materials, projects, and experiences to support Orange High School Students

The Grants for Education Program supports student development by funding materials, projects, and experiences extending beyond those of Orange Public Schools.

The committee is comprised of parent volunteers who meet each grant review period to solicit grant applications, determine approval and distribute funds to grant recipients.

The purpose of the Orange High School PTA is to support the welfare of the students and staff of Orange High School.  Our motto is: “Working To Make Every Child's Potential A Reality”.  All grants should support one or more of the PTA’s goals of giving students the confidence to succeed, encouraging creativity, or emphasizing character importance.

Thanks to the generous support of the Orange High School PTA community, the Grants for Education program has been included in the budget for the 2022-23 school year. We appreciate the opportunity to enhance the learning environment for OHS students and hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and submit your PTA Educational Grant Application.
