The Preuss School Day of Giving

Since March 2020, The Preuss School UC San Diego has taken prompt action to reallocate funds in response to COVID-19 to address the growing and changing needs of our students, faculty and staff. From purchasing technology for students to increasing investments in sanitation, The Preuss School has reacted quickly to support our scholars. Today, help us fund the many initiatives that have made The Preuss School extraordinary. Your support makes The Preuss Promise possible: Transform society—starting with the next generation of changemakers.

Donors to The Preuss School are committed to connecting promise with possibility, developing young thinkers and problem solvers, confident colleagues and citizens. Gifts of any size from alumni and friends, like you, combine to create significant impact. Whether contributing to scholarships, academic programs or mental health and wellness, every gift matters. Together with your philanthropic support, we advance the Campaign for UC San Diego and its Student Support and Success Initiative, leveraging and empowering our scholars to make waves in San Diego and beyond.


An Extended Year of School

Tuition at The Preuss School is free for all scholars, and funding from the district covers the traditional school year. Your support covers the gap in funding for the Longer Learning Time school day and school year. After completing middle and high school, our scholars accumulate almost an entire extra academic year of instruction time.

Individualized Experience

A critical part of our model for middle and high school, University Prep Advisory prepares scholars with the skills to be successful college students and lifelong learners. Activities are geared toward personal development, college preparation and exploration, literacy and mathematical skill reinforcement, preparation for standardized testing, and college application and admission.


Your gift will have a direct impact on the success of The Preuss School and the aspiring learners we help graduate. Learn more about other giving opportunities that empower The Preuss Promise here.
