Merit-based scholarship consideration is generally given to first-year/freshmen applicants possessing a high school average of at least 88 and competitive SAT/ACT test scores. For the fall ‘21 incoming class, however, our admissions process will be test optional due to the difficulty in securing a SAT/ACT test date. For fall ’21 our scholarship review process will consist of a holistic review of your application that will take into account the rigor of your high school curriculum, your extracurricular activities (school and community), and any leadership roles that you have held over the course of your high school career.
For scholarship consideration, a complete admissions application must be received by January 1.
