We Thrive When You Give

Support from the community is a vital part of our character and philosophy. Parents, extended family, past parents, alumni, friends and neighbors collaborate to help through donations and volunteerism. We all participate to insure the financial health and sustainability of Pacific Crest. Working together is a value we practice, we enjoy and in which we include our students every day.

Pacific Crest School is committed to maintaining reasonable and moderate tuition for all families now and in the future. However, tuition does not fully cover the cost of providing a quality Montessori education. Donations to the Annual Fund and participation in the biennial Starlight Auction and a variety of other fund-raising events help bridge the gap. We encourage all families to participate at the highest level possible. Your continuing generosity funds education for life.
