New Middle School Students
In 2013, St. Anne's Episcopal School introduced two merit scholarships which are awarded annually to talented new Middle School students entering grades 5-8. Generous donor support provides a $8,000 per year scholarship to two new students. This award stays with the student for the number of years that he/she attends the school (up to four years or $32,000).
Our goal is to attract new, engaging students who will benefit from, and add to the St. Anne’s school community. While grades and test scores matter, we are ultimately seeking students who model good citizenship and our core values of respect, responsibility, and compassion.
Applicants may also apply for need-based tuition assistance.
Two scholarships for the 2019-20 tuition: $8,000 per recipient.
Each scholarship will continue for the term of the student's enrollment at St. Anne's, through graduation (up to 4 years).
Recipients must maintain academic and community standards, which will be reviewed annually.
Any new student applying to grades 5-8 at St. Anne’s for the 2019-20 academic year (current grade level must be 4th-7th grade).
There is no area residency requirement for the scholarships. Students from Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania attend St. Anne’s. Please review our Transportation Program for details and fees.

These Saturdays are planned for the ERB online Admissions Exam for all applicants entering grades 5-8: December 15, 2018, January 12 and February 9, 2019 (time to be announced). This step is required for all scholarship applicants.
5. Additional Tuition Assistance
Candidates for the scholarships are also eligible for need-based Tuition Assistance from St. Anne’s. The school is committed to providing financial support to families who cannot meet the entire tuition obligation. All candidates may apply separately to our Tuition Assistance program which requires a FAST online application each year. We encourage you to review this process prior to May if your student will require aid to enroll.

Decision and Notification
Scholarship applications will be reviewed based on all the information received about each applicant. St. Anne's selection committee is comprised of faculty and administrators.

St. Anne's has chosen to keep the names of the selected recipients confidential due to the young age of the applicants, and the small size of the school.
