Celebrating Excellence
The Public Education Foundation of Anniston, Inc. is the only educational organization in the United States who has received the Standards of Excellence Institute® seal of excellence and one of many nonprofit organizations from Anniston, Alabama. The organizations were reviewed by peer teams for compliance in ethics, accountability, advocacy, and a host of other standards. The higher level of standards, practices, and policies that are now set in place will help PEFA to continue their work through its mission and service to the community.



A child’s learning is a blend of experiences in the school, home and community. Realizing this fact, an active partnership has been created between Anniston City Schools and the Next Start Program.

  • To promote learning and strengthen student academic achievement
  • Expand student’s learning opportunities
