SEA: 75 Years of Community.

On Thursday, November 3, we’re asking you to join us for the St. Edmund's Academy Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising campaign to inspire participation in annual giving from our community of families, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni, and friends.

For the past 75 years, the strength of our community binds together generations of alumni, families, teachers, and friends. For all those who have walked through our halls, St. Edmund’s Academy is more than just a place. It is where we engage with our friends, where we are guided with individual attention, where our Core Values matter, where we commit to high standards. Join us today by giving back to honor our history as we build for the future. Be a part of our SEA community. 

Join our philanthropic community and make a gift to The SEA Fund and/or a designation meaningful to you!

The SEA Fund supports essential aspects of our students' experience, including great teaching, faculty professional development, innovative curricula, and cutting-edge technology. It provides scholarships for our talented and diverse student body and helps care for our facilities. Help us reach our Giving Day goals:

  • 447 total donors
  • $125,000+ total dollars raised
  • 75 members of The 1947 Society contributing $75,000+
