We have a proud culture of philanthropy at SDJA

At SDJA, we have a culture of philanthropy that is vital to the student experience. Current parents, grandparents, and many others give at a range of levels throughout the school year. These contributions help us attract and retain high quality teachers, provide cutting edge learning experiences, and ensure the safety and security of our students on campus, among other top priorities. Giving occurs at any time, but it’s especially meaningful and enjoyable when we hold comedy nights, galas, and other events that bring our community together to raise money for our school and our families.
