Helping students reach their full potential

Since 1907, San Marcos Academy has helped thousands of students reach their personal potential by focusing on our mission “to educate young men and women within a nurturing community based upon Christian values.” The Academy Development Office is committed to supporting the school’s mission by nurturing relationships with alumni, friends, parents, foundations, and the local, national, and international communities with which we interact.

Scholarships: Brighter Futures

Many Academy students would simply not be able to attend our school without financial assistance. By providing deserving students with the funds they need to attend the Academy, our donors are sharing the gift of a lifetime. It is a gift that opens the doors to academic and spiritual discovery, to deepened knowledge and self-esteem, to greater dreams and the courage to follow them, and to a treasure trove of memories that will last forever. In short, it is the gift of a brighter future.

To invest in the life of an Academy student, donors may give any amount to the Student Financial Assistance Fund. All of these dollars are used to help families afford the cost of an Academy education. Donors may also establish an Endowed Scholarship. These scholarships provide ongoing annual benefits for students while keeping the core endowment principal intact to fund future years of assistance.

$50 + Student Financial Assistance Fund (a gift of any amount is appreciated!)
$25,000 Named Endowed Scholarship (may be funded over a period of five years)

To Honor and Remember

Walking around the beautiful campus of San Marcos Academy, one cannot help but notice the scores of engraved pavers and plaques placed by trees, benches, planter areas, and other structures around campus. These pavers and plaques are the means by which alumni, friends and supporters of the Academy have chosen to honor and to remember their loved ones in a pleasing and permanent way. Following is additional information on these giving options.
