The School has worked to increase financial aid funding to students in the form of need and merit-based School scholarships. All returning students have the opportunity to apply for over $900,000 in School-sponsored scholarships each year with scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $24,000 with an average of $5,000. A competitive application process is overseen by the Scholarship Committee. An online application utilizes a holistic rubric to objectively evaluate applications (e.g. professional development, participation in scholarly endeavors, impact, commitment to school and community, self-awareness) and to make awards based on donor intent. One-year recruitment scholarships are also offered to select candidates at the point of admission.
