Merritt Academy is pleased to extend its longstanding support of education for gifted-learners from under-represented communities in their pursuit to realize their full potential. However, in order to do this, we need your help!
Through the YES Scholarship Program, Merritt Academy will provide full financial support and 50% tuition scholarships for families with a demonstrated need to help offset the expense of education for their scholar. Students maintaining their qualifications will be able to renew their scholarships annually through their middle school years to graduation at Merritt Academy.
We are looking for respected community organizations and individuals to assist us by using the attached form to nominate a rising 5th, 6th or 7th grade student that has the grades and passion to thrive in a learning community centered on academic excellence, collaboration, project-based learning and character education.
