Discover What Matters

Support Severn
Your donation helps support every Severn Admiral on their journey of self-discovery, leadership, and knowledge.

Make a Gift

There are many ways to contribute to the Severn experience. Reach your charitable giving goals through a gift that works for you, while helping to make a difference for our students.

Admiral Parent's Association

The Severn community is a strong one, and as a Severn parent, you are a valued and important part of it. Severn parents are automatically made members of our vibrant parent group, the Admiral Parents’ Association. 

The Admiral Parents’ Association supports the Severn community through more than 125 annual events, regular parent gatherings and by serving as grade-level representatives for each grade. If you’re looking to play a more active role on the Severn campus, this is the perfect way to get involved.  

Alumni Portal

Our active and involved alumni network is a testament to the deep relationships we cultivate here at Severn. We hope you keep your ties to the Severn community strong — after all, building community is at the root of everything we do. 
There are many ways for alumni to stay active within the Severn network. Serve as a mentor to current students, join us as a guest lecturer, or network with other alumni online through our Severn Connect portal. Once an Admiral, always an Admiral!

Development Team

Our Team
In the development office, we have the incredible fortune of working alongside Severn School's talented faculty and students while supporting learning and teaching through philanthropy.
We hear the stories our donors share about their "why" — during a conversation on the bleachers at a sporting event, in a carline in the afternoon, or even in a note that accompanies a gift they mailed to our office. The Severn donor wants to support the excellent teacher, honor that special coach, or give back to the school that gave them or their children the skills and experience to thrive.
This year, I invite you to find your "why." Remember that person, place, or experience that makes Severn so special for your family. When you make your gift, I encourage you to share your stories with me. Together, we can work to ensure that every Severn student is known and valued, that our outstanding faculty feel supported, and programs are enhanced to provide the most compelling opportunities and spaces to learn and teach.
Sincerest regards,
Shannon Howell
Director of Development
