ATTENTION SOPH/JR CLASSES:  Exclusively for Academic Booster Donors

FREE* Combo ACT/SAT Test – September 2019. With every $495 donation *, you will be eligible to enroll your Sophomore or Junior for a special Combo ACT/SAT test to be held in September. Students can take this special ACT/SAT test that helps them determine which test best suits them, followed by a test-taking strategy session. Deadline to donate and be eligible is August 30, 2019. This 2-part offering will be held only on Sept 7th for the test and 18th for the strategy session. All eligible donors will be invited to register by email in late August.


Thanks to all for your generous contributions to Monte Vista. We truly appreciate your ongoing support.


Why should you donate?  Because your support for Academic Boosters is the only way to add extra sections or class periods to the master schedule. This important fundraiser helps reduce class size and allows us to offer our award winning electives not otherwise funded.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at Monte Vista.


What is a Class Section?  One Class Section is one teacher, one classroom, one subject for one school year. 


When do you donate?  Now.  Our goal this year is 18 sections with your support.


How do you donate? Suggested per student donation is $495.  But we accept any level of support for our students. 

Together we are Stampede Strong and only as strong as the community that supports us. Check into your Future Fund Account to make an online donation today or avoid the 3.5% credit card fee by sending a check written to MVHS Academic Boosters at 3131 Stone Valley Road, Danville, CA 94526.
