# Giving Tuesday Support for Saint Mary's College High School
Join Us in Making a Difference!

We are thankful and blessed…

We are thankful and grateful for your support of the work we do for our students at Saint Mary’s, especially on this Giving Tuesday.

We are thankful and blessed to have donors and benefactors that support Saint Mary’s. It is the combination of tuition and donations that allow us to provide the academic and co-curricular programs that we do. Tuition for the 2023 – ‘24 academic year is $23,200. The actual cost of educating a student at Saint Mary’s is $25,000. Living the tradition of the Christian Brothers, we extend financial support to all our families, including an additional $2.4 million to an over 200 of our families through financial assistance. Once again, through tuition and fundraising efforts, we ensure the financial stability of Saint Mary's Mission and programs.

We are thankful and blessed that Saint Mary's College High School successfully completed its accreditation process under the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) last Spring. We are proud that Saint Mary's has received a full six-year accreditation with no mid-year visit. This validation, complemented by positive evaluations from guest educators, underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering a successful college-preparatory education aligned with our Lasallian Mission and values. With strong enrollment and the initiation of a five-year strategic plan, we are positioned for growth for our students across all aspects of our school.

We are thankful and blessed for the Christian Brothers and dedicated Lasallian faculty and staff. Saint Mary’s continues the ministry of the Christian Brothers by educating our students’ hearts, souls, and minds. Rooted in our Lasallian Core Principles and values, we work to guide our students in treating themselves and others respectfully and with understanding and compassion. We are strongly committed to offering opportunities for prayerful reflection, faith-based rituals, self-examination of the heart and soul, and showing empathy for the poor and marginalized in our world.

We are thankful and blessed to be located in a beautiful setting at Peralta Park in Berkeley. Saint Mary’s is committed to maintaining and expanding our facilities for our students. We are finishing the Cross-Plaza Project and continuing to develop our campus master plan for the future. We are very grateful to all of our alumni and families, throughout the years, who have helped with funding building and maintenance projects for facilities that support our students.

Finally, Saint Mary’s is blessed to have wonderful families, students, dedicated faculty and staff, generous alumni and friends, 161 years of the Christian Brothers ministry, and the gift of being a Lasallian School. Throughout Saint Mary’s history, the world and country has experienced many challenging times. It is especially during these difficult times that Saint Mary’s must instill hope, faith, and Lasallian Values in our students as they prepare to enter the adult world. Our hope and prayer for their future is that they will embrace Jesus’ message of “Love one another.”

Thank you again for your support of Saint Mary’s.
God bless you and your families.
