What is SPARK?

SPARK stands for Supporting Partnerships and Resources for Kids.

SPARK is the Education Foundation for Prince William County Public Schools. Through community and business partnerships, SPARK is able to provide programs and initiatives to our schools that they may not otherwise have.

Several programs are managed through SPARK to include the Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment Program, better known as VA STAR, Smart Beginnings, an Early Childhood Education Initiative, and the Robotics Program.

If you are a business or non-profit organization and would like to become involved with our schools, please contact SPARK directly at 703.791.8003.
