Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships are based on a student’s cumulative high school GPA and the highest SAT combined score or ACT composite score of tests taken by January of the senior year. Academic scholarships range from $12,000 to $18,000 per year and are renewable for four years, depending on academic performance. A separate application is not required.
