Merit Scholarship Program

Bringing Learning to Life

AT RENBROOK, IT IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE TEACH, BUT HOW WE TEACH IT, that keeps the love of learning alive for middle school students. In all academic courses, students integrate and apply knowledge through collaborative work and various project-based learning initiatives. Through these initiatives, they gain the confidence and skills to make sound decisions, take risks and solve real-life problems. The school day is joyful and dynamic, and students feel supported by faculty and their peers in an inclusive, caring environment.

Renbrook School believes the power of an exceptional middle school experience can shape the trajectory of your child’s future. Our students in grades five through eight are the oldest in our learning community; they rise to be leaders, master academically rigorous coursework and engage in a meaningful way in a myriad of co-curricular opportunities. Our Vision of a Graduate Merit Scholarship provides opportunity for students to join our community for the middle school years. The scholarship is open to new fifth-eighth grade students who demonstrate enthusiasm for learning and evidence of strong academic achievement, character, and citizenship. In addition, successful applicants will provide examples of dedicated involvement or accomplishment in a co-curricular activity. Merit scholarships will be awarded for entrance to Renbrook for the 2021-22 academic year; applications will be reviewed throughout the admission season as long as funding is still available.

Examples of accomplishments in academic or co-curricular activties may include but are not limited to:

Community Service
