Giving season is here!

Giving season is here!

At Mt. Scott we’re used to doing a lot with a little. So a gift to our school makes a real difference, whether we’re adding new books to our library, buying students lunch on a college campus visit, or making sure everyone’s laser pointer is still working.

These little things add up. And what they add up to at Mt. Scott is a high school diploma for students who didn’t think they’d get one. And a diploma from Mt. Scott isn’t just a diploma. It’s a plan for life success.

Because we don’t just help students earn credits. We help them plan for the future. And we do it the same way we get through a lesson–with lots of individual attention, meeting students where they are, and celebrating what each individual brings to the community.

With your gift, you’re telling Mt. Scott students that their community doesn’t end at the front door. It’s all of us. It’s you. Thank you for showing them that their value is welcomed, is needed, as they keep working towards that diploma, and a bright future beyond.
