The San Marcos Promise is a scholarship and career guidance program designed to enhance the lives of students, families and the communities in North San Diego County. We offer a promise of hope and opportunity for San Marcos’ youth and a long-term goal of reinforcing the culture of San Marcos as a well-educated, vibrant, prosperous community for years to come. The Promise inspires students to complete high school, sharpens focus on academic achievement and provides a direct path to post-secondary educational opportunities.
The Promise offers scholarship awards to graduates of the San Marcos Unified School District (“SMUSD”) who meet necessary academic benchmarks. It provides the financial assistance necessary to offset the costs associated with higher education, allowing students to achieve their career goals. As a result, students in the San Marcos Unified School District are prepared and supported to pursue a relevant education beyond high school that will allow them to achieve their career goals. We look forward to your support in growing our Promise as we build a community vision for higher education!
