All applicants must be entering the eighth or ninth grade and are required to take the placement test when administered by the school on the official Application Day in January. The school’s Scholarship Committee, headed by the principal, considers students who potentially qualify for scholarships based on school records and recommendations from principals. The scholarship awards go to the students with the highest placement test scores (90 percentile minimum) who meet the criteria for the award. The school has no limit on the number of grants available for distribution. All scholarships are renewable on an annual basis provided the recipient maintains his cumulative GPA and performance criteria. Scholarship award winners will be notified in writing. A scholarship awards ceremony is held in the spring on a date to be announced.
