For 30 years, Monarch School has served some of the region's most vulnerable students, those experiencing homelessness.
Monarch's mission is to help students break the cycle of homelessness through education. Monarch's specialized programs help children in kindergarten through 12th grade overcome the barriers homelessness can cause so they can focus on learning.
SDCOE runs the program as part of Momentum Learning in partnership with the nonprofit Monarch School Project.
The school opened in San Diego in 1987 and moved to a new, larger campus near downtown in 2013.
The school will celebrate its three-decade milestone with an annual fundraiser April 27. The Building Bright Futures event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the school, 1625 Newton Ave. in San Diego. It will include complimentary valet parking, hors d'oeuvres, craft beer, wine, a live auction, and student performances.
