From the Director of Advancement

As Director of Advancement, I am fortunate to spend time with our families, alumni and friends of SJK. I love to hear about their SJK experiences, and the depth of their ties, to our School, continually amazes me.

In Advancement, we work to keep those bonds strong and vibrant – to build lifelong relationships that will help ensure that SJK remains the area's leading independent school.

Charged with building an Advancement Office, this portfolio comprises Alumni Affairs, Development, and Strategic Partnerships. The goal of this department is to meet the needs and interests of our alumni and community by attracting and stewarding the philanthropic support that is so important to SJK's future.

Working in partnership with the members of the SJK Foundation, this team works collaboratively with parents, volunteers, staff, faculty and alumni committed to providing regular communication about giving and the impact of their gifts.

SJK is a special place, remarkable for its proud history, for the beauty of its setting and campus; and, above all, for the quality and commitment of its people.

Our faculty, our students, our staff, our alumni and supporters create quite a magical combination, and we greatly value their individual and collective contributions to SJK's bright future.

Mrs. Alfie Scozzaro

Director of Advancement

Giving is not a moment or a single act. It is a philosophy, a way of living where you recognize the needs of others and actively seek ways to be part of the solution.
