Report on Giving

Greatness is a continuous process
fostered by a committed community

We launch young people into the world ready and inspired to make it better. Our students model compassion and altruism and are challenged to become the best version of themselves. Philanthropy advances our educational practices and helps make this all possible. 

The 2021–2022 Report on Giving celebrates the incredible generosity and volunteerism of the La Jolla Country Day School community.
A message of gratitude from Head of School Dr. Gary Krahn.
