Academy High is excited to offer its Pursuit of Passion Scholarship and welcomes applications. Academy High wants to hear from graduating eighth graders about their passions and their plans to pursue them. One winner may be awarded a full scholarship; additional winners may be awarded partial scholarships. These awards are applied to the cost of tuition for the 2018-2019 academic year and are renewable thereafter.
Last year, Academy High awarded three Pursuit of Passion Scholarships, and those scholars are successfully completing their first year at the school. One recipient noted, “I didn’t think I could win a scholarship. I hoped for the best and submitted my PoP application. I had the best year ever at Academy High and am so thankful. The teachers really encourage you and care about you.”
Head of School, Dr. Darren Pascavage, said that the “PoP Scholarship aligns with the school’s mission of supporting students in the discovery and pursuit of their passions. Whether students are interested in the arts, athletics, math, science, film, music, or any other area, we want to hear from them. The decision simply to apply may set them on an incredible new path.”
Applicants may submit an essay, a video, a piece of artwork, or whatever else demonstrates their passion and their plan to pursue it. For details on how to apply, please visit the school’s website at www.academyhigh.org.
Applications are due on Thursday, May 24th, 2018.
