Your Gift Will Support Our Students' Futures

While SLJ’s public funding provides for the academic rigor that is a major component of high school success, there are not enough resources to provide the critical experiences and opportunities outside the classroom that drive college readiness and are staples of more affluent school districts. Thanks to the generous individual and corporate donors we are able to provide individualized college, career, and enrichment programming that allows our students to get into and thrive in college and create successful futures for themselves.
