Serra families are asked to make a separate financial commitment in the form of a annual parent pledge for each child attending Serra to help cover the true cost of their son’s education. Contributions are 100% tax deductible and assure that all students will receive the very best educational experience possible. Our most important goal is 100% participation from all families, including recipients of financial aid, at whatever level parents are able to contribute. This level of support enables us to secure additional funding from foundations and alumni who are asked to contribute to our ongoing program and capital needs.
We know from experience that our alumni, foundations and other benefactors look to the commitment of parents in deciding their own level of support, particularly as we ask them for larger gifts for program enhancements and capital improvements.
