St. Anne’s Episcopal School, 211 Silver Lake Road, Middletown, is offering two merit scholarship awards of $8,000 per year for each new student because of donor support.

These awards are designed to attract new, engaging fifth- through eighth-grade students who will benefit from and add to the school’s community. Each scholarship will be awarded for the term of the student’s enrollment at St. Anne’s, through graduation.

Families may learn more at open houses set for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 12 and 6 p.m. Nov. 16, as well as at the school’s weekly tours held at 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays — call 378-3179, option 1, to RSVP.

The school is seeking nominations and applications for one U.S. service scholarship for $7,500 to be awarded to a new student entering fifth through eighth grade who has immediate family in the U.S. military. This award is drawn from a donor-supported fund to help make a St. Anne’s education accessible to students whose immediate family member is serving in or retired from any of the five branches of the U.S. military and their Reserve and National Guard units. The scholarship will continue for up to four years while the student is enrolled at St. Anne’s.

The recipient must have a demonstrated need for financial assistance in meeting the annual tuition obligation for St. Anne’s.

The scholarship application process includes a family tour; admissions forms due Jan. 3, 2018; and a student visit day at St. Anne’s. Applicants for fifth through eighth grade must complete admission exams, which are administered at St. Anne’s using the Educational Records Bureau CTP online tests Jan. 27, Feb. 24 or April 14, 2018. Candidates for all scholarships may also apply for need-based financial aid, which requires an online application by Feb. 1, 2018. Recipients must maintain academic and community standards, which will be reviewed annually.

U.S. service scholarship candidates must also apply to St. Anne’s financial aid program to qualify for the scholarship by no later than March 26, 2018.

There is no area residence requirement for the scholarships. The St. Anne’s Selection Committee is comprised of faculty and administrators. Recipients must maintain academic and community standards, which will be reviewed annually

Recipients will be notified confidentially by April 27, 2018. Those who are selected will have until May 11 to make a decision to enroll at St. Anne’s for the coming academic year. St. Anne’s is choosing to keep the selection of the recipient’s confidential due to the young age of the applicants and the size of the school.
