Merit Scholarship Program

Oak Hill Academy has instituted a Merit Scholarship Program for new students entering the school in grades 5-8. The school is looking for children who have a passion to learn in a supportive and challenging atmosphere. Awards will be determined by a committee and will be based on an entrance test, current transcript, letters of recommendation, and student essay. All requirements for application for a Merit Scholarship should be met in conjunction with application for general school admissions. Candidates are chosen only on merit and is therefore a need-blind process. There will be a limited number of scholarships awarded of up to $5,000 each for the school year offered on a rolling basis. Merit scholarship recipients are also eligible for tuition assistance based on need through Oak Hill’s separate Tuition Assistance Program. Each scholarship will be for the duration of the student’s attendance and will continue pending the student’s high academic performance as evidenced by achieving “First Honors” each semester and a high level of citizenship. Awards will be made on a rolling basis.

Headmaster Joseph A. Pacelli states, “The purpose of the program is to help ensure a steady stream of highly qualified students who would not only benefit from an Oak Hill education, but would also contribute positive qualities to our OHA Community.”

Applicants are encouraged to contact Director of Admissions, Mrs. Christina Larkins, at Oak Hill Academy for more information. (clarkins@oakhillacademy.com)

Note: All Merit Scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year have been awarded.
