The Archwood Scholarship

A scholarship for rising 9th-grade students

Outstanding students entering 9th grade are eligible to apply for the Archwood Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded every year to one new student and one returning with a demonstrated commitment to engagement inside and outside the classroom. That engagement might take any variety of forms, such as a deep interest in one or more academic subjects, or involvement in sports, the arts, or community service.

The scholarship provides an annual award of 25% the tuition for the four years of Upper School, provided the recipient continues to live up to the values that characterize an Archwood Scholar. Those values include a passion for curiosity, an appreciation for scholarship, and a commitment to excellence.
