Merit Scholarship Program

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.

Prospective families who are interested in being considered for a merit scholarship need to complete the online merit scholarship application after they have completed their admissions application on the MySewickley portal. The merit scholarship application requires the following, some of which includes documents submitted for the admissions application:

  • Teacher recommendations
  • Exam scores from the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) or the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT)
  • Academic performance at the student’s previous school(s)
  • Participation in school activities
  • Admissions essays
  • Merit scholarship application essays

The deadline for the first round of merit scholarship consideration is February 10, 2020. All completed merit scholarship applications that also have completed admissions applications by February 10 will be notified of the Merit Scholarship Committee’s decision on March 2. Rolling applications will be accepted from March 2 through August 1, but it is highly recommended that students apply during the first round.
