Merit Scholarships

St. Andrew's Merit Scholarship Program offers two prestigious scholarships, the Malone Scholarship and Julia Chadwick Arches to Excellence Scholarship, for academically exceptional students with financial need who are entering grades 7-12.
The Malone Scholarship was created consistent with the aspirations of The Malone Family Foundation whose principal initial objective is to improve access to quality education. Future St. Andrew's students and applicants for admission are encouraged to apply. Nevertheless, current St. Andrew's students are not prohibited from applying for a Malone Scholarship. The Julia Chadwick Arches to Excellence Scholarship was created with similar criteria and a consistent application process as the Malone Scholarship; the Chadwick scholarships are also open to admission applicants and current students in rising grades 7-12. The application process for the Merit program is rigorous, and recipients shine both at St. Andrew's and in their pursuits after commencement.
The Merit Scholarship Program not only makes it possible for these students to attend St. Andrew's, but also gives those students the preparation they need to succeed in college and in life. Scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee comprised of admission staff, administrators, and teachers and all applicant information will be shared with the selection committee confidentially.

    ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam)

    February 1, 2024 is the last available date to take the ISEE or provide an ACT score report.
