The Scholastic Achievement Foundation of Palm Beach County is actively committed to encouraging, recognizing and rewarding high school seniors who have demonstrated academic excellence in public, private, parochial and charter school education.

46th Annual Scholastic Achievement Foundation Dinner 

Palm Beach County’s Highest Academic Achieving Seniors Honored At The Breakers Hotel

The Scholastic Achievement Foundation is pleased to announce that our 2024 Dinner will be held on April 2, 2024.  The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and continues with an elegant dinner in the Venetian Ballroom.  Throughout the evening the students in attendance will be honored for their many accomplishments including several scholarship awards.

The Scholastic Achievement Foundation started in 1977, when Clifford E. Ripley – then Palm Beach County Schools’ Assistant Superintendent – called together key administrators from public, private and parochial schools with an idea: Create a memorable event to recognize outstanding achievement by high school seniors throughout the county.

Since 1977, more than 5,000 students have been recognized at our dinners. More than 450 outstanding students have earned college scholarships.

Our continuing mission is to honor these students and their academic achievements. Help us to keep this tradition alive!

“My dream one day is to become a secondary school teacher who helps serve underrepresented youth. Perhaps, even a school administrator who helps make important decisions that benefit the academic community.”
