Taking student success to new heights.
Founded in 1999, an initial contribution of $1,000,000 from Cobb Energy was used to fund a portion of the athletic stadiums at Pope and Harrison High Schools, and used to build stadiums at Kennesaw Mountain and Kell High Schools. The Foundation is a nonprofit supporting organization governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees separate from the Cobb County School Board of Education.
The Foundation’s reach is among our almost 112,000 students, located throughout 112 schools, including 67 elementary schools, 25 middle schools, 16 high schools, one charter school, one special education center, one adult education center and one performance learning center. The Cobb County School District (CCSD) is the second largest school system in Georgia and the 23rd largest in the nation.
