Sewickley Academy offers merit scholarships for prospective students entering Grades 6–9. The merit scholarships, which are not based on a family's financial need, will range from $2,500 to $10,000 per year. Scholarships are renewable annually through Grade 12, as long as a student continues to meet the scholarship criteria. The number of scholarships offered and the subsequent amounts will be determined by the Merit Scholarship Committee each year.
