Guaranted Merit Scholarships for Fall 2014
Freshman academic scholarships are based on several criteria, including course achievement, SAT and/or ACT results, and achievement in extracurricular activities. Financial need is not a factor in merit-based award decisions.
The following are descriptions of the attributes of academic scholarship recipients: SAT score ranges noted below are based on critical reading/verbal and math scores only. We do not consider scores on the writing section. Once a student is accepted and offered an academic scholarship, additional scores after the date of acceptance cannot increase the amount.
Trustee Scholarship ($20,000 per year)
Accepted students are guaranteed this scholarship if they fall in one of two academic profiles: 1) An SAT score of 1250 or higher (28 ACT) with a GPA of 2.75 or higher, or 2) An SAT score of 1200 or higher (26 ACT) with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Presidential Scholarship ($19,000 per year)
Accepted students are guaranteed this scholarship if they have an SAT score of 1100 or higher (24 ACT) with a GPA of 2.75 or higher.

Leadership Scholarship ($5,000 per year minimum)
Accepted students who do not fall within the ranges above will be considered for these awards. Award amounts will be based on leadership qualities, involvement in school and community activities, and financial need. For full consideration, all students should file the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov.
