Senior Legacy Gift

The Senior Legacy Gift is a Mount Madonna School Family Tradition

At the end of their senior year, traditionally the graduating class and their families make a contribution toward a program, campus facility or campaign that has meaning to them.
In the past, gifts have included commemorative benches, a sound system for the Hawks' Nest gym, cash donations to the gymnasium capital campaign, among many others. Mount Madonna School is deeply grateful for the many ways that our graduates and their families have chosen to commemorate their relationship to Mount Madonna School.
Because this is a gift, it is important that students and their families find the right gift, one that holds meaning for them.

New Family Referral and Sibling Incentive Program

Mount Madonna School’s New Family and Sibling Incentive Program provides a tuition discount to current Mount Madonna School (MMS) families who refer new families to MMS. The program includes referrals that result in newly enrolled students who join the school at any point during the school year, and it is intended to offer our current families a way to help grow the School community while also making it financially easier to send their children to MMS.
