Merit Scholarship

Each year, rising freshman applicants are invited in early January to submit an essay for one of three freshman merit-based scholarships.

This scholarship represents half the cost of a current year's tuition which is renewable for the three following school years provided the student remains in good academic/behavior standings.


Prospective freshman who wish to apply for a merit scholarship must meet the following criteria:

  • Have completed all admission requirements including application, 3 recommendations, SSAT'S and interview
  • Have maintained a minimum overall grade point average for the 8th grade of 90 or B+ (whichever is to the student's advantage) with no grades below a C
  • Submit a handwritten essay on a given topic. There is a strict deadline on applying for a freshman merit scholarship on the website admission calendar.
