The Founders' Scholarship Program

The Founders' Scholarship is awarded to the most qualified students entering ninth grade, who have been selected through a competitive process. The program grooms young leaders in scholarship and community service. The scholarship is a merit-based award equal to 50% of 9th grade entering tuition and is renewable for all four years of Upper School.

The number of scholarships awarded in a given year is limited and depends on the strength of the applicant pool. All incoming ninth graders are eligible to apply.  January 15th is the Priority Application Deadline for admission and for the Founders’ Scholarship application, including Founders’ essay.  On or before this date, submit all parts of the Chase application for admission and participate in the classroom visit and admissions interview.  Finalists are selected to participate in our Founders' Day on Saturday, February 7, 2015 which includes an interview, team-building exercises and seminar discussion.  Recipients of the Founders' Scholarship will be announced on February 13, 2015.
