This year Suncoast Community High School will celebrate its 25th year as a magnet school of choice in the Palm Beach County School District. In that short time, Suncoast has established a level of academic excellence that has resulted in the school's consistently ranking among the very top magnet public high schools in the United States. To help Suncoast maintain its high performance, the Suncoast High School Foundation was formed in 2001 to support academic excellence and student achievement at the school. Over the past ten years, generous donations have enabled the Foundation to provide in excess of $650,000 to support the needs of all of the choice programs at Suncoast.

Suncoast students and faculty enjoy a well-deserved national reputation for academic excellence. The growing body of Suncoast alumni have augmented the school's reputation for excellence through their achievements in universities, business and the professions. A Suncoast education can open the door to a wide range of higher education opportunities that otherwise might not be available to high school students. We need your help to assure that these opportunities continue to be available to current and future Suncoast students.

Your contributions to the Foundation will help enhance the value of a Suncoast education and continue the school's strong record of producing highly qualified graduates. Our Annual Fund campaign offers the simplest way to show your support for Suncoast. Your unrestricted donation will be used to meet the school's needs, and all donors will receive recognition in the Foundation's newsletter and annual report.

With the opening of the new Suncoast school campus, those who are considering major donations in support of Suncoast have the opportunity through the Foundation to name school facilities and help create a lasting financial endowment for future generations of Suncoast students. Through the Foundation's Council of Business Advisors, area businesses have the opportunity to partner with Suncoast to become more involved in supporting the school, including through the Council's student internship program.

We also offer other ways for alumni, parents and other friends of Suncoast to participate. You may want to consider honoring a student, family or teacher by naming an auditorium seat or purchasing an engraved tile to be added to the courtyard wall.

Please join us in helping to assure that Suncoast's legacy of excellence continues for future generations. Your contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible and can be made on this website. Thank you for being a part of the Suncoast family.

Go Chargers!

David L. Perry, Foundation President
