Who We Are

We are an entirely volunteer-based organization that is dedicated to leveling the playing field for students at San Diego High School.

Collectively, we fundraise, administer scholarship programs, write grant applications, source volunteers, and seek community and corporate partnerships.

Our team includes alumni, community members, and former teachers, staff and parents. With diverse skills and experiences, we share a passion for and commitment to San Diego High School.


Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community partners, the San Diego High School Foundation is able to provide numerous scholarships to San Diego High School students interested in pursuing higher education.
In 2015-2016, we were able to offer over $100,000 in scholarships to San Diego High School Students.

Scholarship Application

The San Diego High School Foundation is an all-volunteer organization and we need your help to both continue and expand our work.
