In honor of Mrs. Emmet and all of the people who supported her in establishing and growing High Mowing into the school it is today, 70 years after the first students arrived, the Board of Trustees has established the Founders Merit Scholarship program.
This competitive scholarship recognizes academically exceptional students with excellent character as demonstrated through their academic achievement, activities, and community service.
Founders Merit Scholarship awards are $10,000 for boarding students, and $7,500 for day students, and are granted without consideration of financial need.
Award recipients are also eligible for Tuition Adjustment (up to 50% of tuition—which includes housing and meals for boarders) based on family need.
Each of the Founders Merit Scholarship pools is unique and mutually exclusive. Students may apply for consideration in only one award category.
