St. Anne’s Episcopal School is accepting nominations and applications for two scholarship programs that are aimed at helping new Middle School students who want to enroll. Two Merit Scholarships for $7,500 per recipient are offered for 2016-17 for new students entering Grades 5-8. Nominations are also being accepted for one U.S. Service Scholarship for a student with immediate family serving in or retired from the military.
On Wednesday, January 27, 5:00-6pm St. Anne’s will host “Affording an Independent School Education,” an informative workshop in the school library at 211 Silver Lake Rd in Middletown. The evening will provide details about the school’s financial aid and scholarship programs as well as a Q&A and 6:00pm tours of the school. This event is free and open to the public, and people are asked to register online or call (302) 378-3179 ext 321. Free childcare until 6:00pm.
“Since its founding, St. Anne’s has been committed to providing dynamic and challenging academics, building character, developing leaders, and cultivating a family-oriented, inclusive community that honors diversity and the dignity of the human spirit,” notes Head of School Peter Thayer. “It is part of our mission to maintain a significant need-based financial aid program to make our school accessible to more students.” Roughly one-third of St. Anne’s students receive some form of assistance in meeting tuition.
In 2013, the school introduced two Merit Scholarships which are funded annually by generous donors and designed to attract great new students to our Middle School. St. Anne’s is seeking mission appropriate students who will benefit from and add to the school’s community. Each scholarship award will continue for the term of the student’s enrollment at St. Anne’s, through graduation (up to four years, from grades 5-8). Recipients must maintain academic and community standards which will be reviewed annually. Applicants should inquire online (stannesde.org) or contact the Admissions office (302) 378-3179 ext 321.
St. Anne’s “U.S. Service Scholarship” for $5,000 was awarded in 2015 to a new Middle School student who has an immediate family member with ties to the military and demonstrated financial need (which is confidential). The next award will be granted when this student finishes at St. Anne’s. The school is seeking nominations and applications for students whose immediate family members have served in any of the five (5) branches of the U.S. Military or their Reserve and National Guard units: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard. Immediate family member is defined as a mother, father, legal guardian, step-mother, step-father or sibling.
There is no area residency requirement for the scholarships. Current St. Anne’s students live in all three Delaware counties as well as northern and eastern Maryland and Pennsylvania. The school’sTransportation program details and fees are available online.
St. Anne’s Episcopal School seeks to open the hearts and minds of each student — through academic excellence, spiritual growth, and a commitment to a diverse, family-oriented community.
