65th Anniversary Merit Scholarship

In celebration of The Country School's 65th Anniversary, the Board of Trustees is offering a $15,000 merit scholarship to a student applying for admission to Grades 4-8 for the fall of 2021.
The recipient of the $15,000 Merit Scholarship will be selected on the basis of academic merit and personal promise as demonstrated by performance on school records, in an interview, and on the Merit Scholarship test, administered to candidates on January 30, 2021 at 1 p.m. Finalists will be asked to write an essay describing how a Country School education might benefit him or her.

Additional scholarships will be offered to students entering those grades based on applicants' qualifications. The scholarship recipient and other financial aid award winners will be notified by February 26, 2021.

Additional Details

The 65th Anniversary Merit Scholarship is for new students and is renewed each year that the students are enrolled at The Country School, provided the recipients stay in strong academic standing and consistently demonstrate good citizenship. It is The Country School's expectation that the Merit Scholarship recipients will contribute significantly to the life of The Country School, creating a stronger overall experience for all students. Additional financial aid may be available based upon need.
