Sewickley Academy offers Merit Scholarships for prospective students entering Grades 6-12. The scholarships are given to students who possess a stellar academic performance and actively reflect the Core Values of the institution. These awards are not based on a family’s financial need and range from $2,500 - $10,000 per year. The scholarships are renewable annually through Grade 12, as long as a student continues to meet the criteria:
Maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
Be a positive contributor to the life of the school and/or community through sports, service, leadership positions, and student clubs and organizations.
Must NOT receive any major disciplinary infractions.
The Academy Scholars is a full-tuition scholarship inclusive of select additional fees for prospective students entering Grades 6-9.
The $20 million donation from the Tull Family Foundation will fund a transformative set of projects and initiatives that will significantly impact the Academy’s academic and athletic offerings and expand access to the school through an increased scholarship program. The Tull Family Foundation is committed to supporting STEM-based educational initiatives and athletic opportunities which are designed to help level the playing field.
The first-round notifications will occur on February 27, 2023, and rolling notifications will occur through August 1. All recipients of a Merit Scholarship will be provided the amount of the scholarship upon notification.
Yes, if applying for financial aid you will also be considered for a merit scholarship, but the awards are not stackable. If you qualify for both a merit scholarship and institutional aid, you will receive whichever is greater.
