Your gift says a lot about us

Tuition covers only 88% of our school's operating costs. Tuition dollars cover the salaries of our faculty and staff, utilities, repairs and maintenance, sanitation services, our protection officers, SAGE dining services and insurance.

Philanthropic gifts to the Shorecrest Fund demonstrate our community’s commitment to covering the +12% of funds essential to providing a transformational education at Shorecrest and beyond. Donor dollars are invested directly into the opportunities and programs for students that allow us to Be More.  

Your gift embodies the achievements of previous leaders while expanding upon their vision of success for current and future students. Any gift, no matter the size, helps us fulfill our mission.
