About Us

We are a group of parents, community members and alumni who have formed The Senators' Success Fund to raise funds in support of the incredible efforts of the teachers, administrators and students at Brien McMahon High School.



Since being founded in 2013, the Senators' Success Fund has provided over $150,000 of funding to support Brien McMahon's educational mission, college process and the overall improvement of the school campus.

Some of SSF's accomplishments:

  • converted the typeface sign in front of the school to an LED sign to better inform students, parents and neighbors about events and developments at the school in hopes of strengthening the school's connections with the community

  • funded annual college visits for all sophomores

  • annually sponsored "The Admissions Game" featuring Peter Van Buskirk, an interactive presentation of the college admissions process for students and parents

  •  supported and assisted the expansion of the college fair, a college planning handbook and increasing individual college representative visits to the school

  •  assisted in the organization and subsidizing of an SAT preparation program

  •  provided funding for Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) course training for teachers

  •  provided annual funding to help the school implement its Professional Internship Program

  •  funded new sound systems for Forcellina Auditorium and Casagrande Field

  • Funded the new weight room for BMHS athletes
