Westfield School to Offer Merit Scholarship Program

The Westfield School will offer its Merit Scholarship Program for the 2011-2012 school year to a rising 9th, 10th or 11th grade student, not currently enrolled at Westfield, for Upper School years.  This scholarship, which covers one-half tuition, may be renewed annually until graduation as long as commendable academic and conduct records are maintained in all areas of school life. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic ability, character and leadership potential.  The scholarship is based on the merit of the student, not the need of the family.
 
“We believe that a Merit Scholarship Program recognizes and rewards worthy students who will benefit from Westfield’s quality college preparatory curriculum and Christian environment,” said Rachel S.
