Scholarships are more than just a means to an education. Funding scholarships is an investment in talent; an opportunity to touch a life, a family, even an entire community. Our goal is to attract gifted students from families with a range of experiences and perspectives. Shorecrest is stronger and richer for their presence.
Financial support of Shorecrest scholarships will have a tangible and lasting impact on generations of deserving Shorecrest students, creating--in your name--a legacy of educational opportunity.
Shorecrest Annual Scholarship
A gift of $80,000 will establish a four-year Shorecrest Annual Scholarship. With a pledge payment of $20,000 per year for four years, donors will support one Shorecrest Upper School student. Annually donors will receive a profile of the recipient of the scholarship. Donors may designate the name that the scholarship bears and stipulate certain preferences for awarding it.
The Haskell Alumni Scholarship
This scholarship was created to honor Bruce Haskell, former Headmaster, and his family. The Haskell family, including Bruce, his mother and his grandmother, led Shorecrest for most of its first 62 years. A gift to the Haskell Alumni Scholarship in any amount will offer support to students with demonstrated financial need who are children of Shorecrest alumni.
An endowment gift is made in perpetuity to the school and future generations. Unlike contributions to the Shorecrest Fund, which are designed for current needs in the immediate fiscal year, endowment gifts build and secure the future financial stability of Shorecrest.
In Support of Outstanding Teaching and Faculty
Shorecrest recognizes that a vital and energized faculty is the hallmark of an exceptional independent school. Endowment gifts nourish and strengthen our faculty by providing professional development and growth opportunities such as workshops, seminars and advanced studies.
Need-Based Financial Aid
To achieve our strategic goals as a diverse community, we must open our doors to those deserving students in our own neighborhoods whose families are unable to fully bear the cost of tuition by providing the necessary support to bring a Shorecrest education within reach.
General Endowment (Non-Designated)
Earnings from unrestricted endowment gifts will be used to support the most important needs of Shorecrest. This income will allow the school to mitigate tuition increases, upgrade technology, purchase new classroom supplies, maintain and improve the physical plant and enhance the overall Shorecrest educational environment.
Facilities (Deferred Maintenance)
Endowment for facilities is the key to ensuring that adequate funds are available to maintain buildings. This endowment supports the care and maintenance of facilities, upgrading of technology, increased utilities and additional personnel to staff new buildings.
The Janet Root State of the Arts Endowment
The Janet Root State of the Arts Endowment was established in 2015 for the sole purpose of providing funds to maintain the interior of the theater and art gallery, including but not limited to refurbishment, repair or renovation of the existing seating, carpet, interior fixed furniture or fixtures; or expansion of the seating capacity or stage area.
The Mosby Family Ancillary Fund
Established in 2006 by Glenn and Dav Mosby, The Mosby Family Ancillary Fund is an endowment that was established to provide funding for non-tuition based expenses to students receiving financial aid in the Upper School at Shorecrest. In creating this endowment, the Mosby Family wanted to ensure that financially needy students could fully participate in the life of Shorecrest during their high school years.
