The Country School Announces $10,000 60th Anniversary Merit Scholarship

Original_LOGOIn celebration of The Country School’s 60th Anniversary, the school’s Board of Trustees is providing a $10,000 merit scholarship to a student applying for admission to Grades 4-8 for the fall of 2015. Additional scholarships will be offered to students entering those grades based on applicants’ qualifications and/or need. Founded in 1955, The Country School will celebrate its 60th anniversary during the 2015-2016 school year.

Head of School John Fixx will share information about the 60th Anniversary Scholarship program on Sunday, Jan. 25, at 12:30 p.m. in conjunction with the school’s Winter Open House (taking place from 1-3:30 p.m.). At that time, parents will have the opportunity to tour campus and speak directly with faculty members, current parents, and administrators. Students are invited to sit for our Merit Scholarship test. To learn more and/or to register, go to www.thecountryschool.org/meritscholarship.

The recipient of the $10,000 Merit Scholarship will be selected on the basis of academic merit and personal promise as demonstrated by this testing, school records, and an interview with the Head of School.  Finalists will be asked to write an essay describing how a TCS education might benefit them and will be invited to spend a day at The Country School visiting classes. The scholarship recipient will be notified by the first week of March.

On Jan. 25, parents will learn about the academic program and the wide artistic, athletic, and leadership opportunities on campus. They will also learn about The Country School’s decades-long history of preparing graduates for the strongest independent secondary schools and high school honors programs in the area and throughout New England. Families will receive the impressive list of where Country School graduates attend college and hear how the Secondary School Placement Office assists families in attracting similar scholarship support for secondary school.

Students will sit for the Merit Scholarship test and experience hands-on learning and design challenges similar to those our current students experience on a regular basis. They will also explore campus and meet teachers and students.

The 60th Anniversary Scholarship is for a new student and is renewed each year that the student is enrolled at The Country School, provided the recipient stays in strong academic standing and consistently demonstrates good citizenship. It is The Country School’s expectation that merit scholarship recipients will contribute significantly to the life of the School, creating a stronger overall experience for all students.

The Country School is a coeducational, independent day school serving 200 students in PreSchool through Grade 8, ages 3-14, on its 23-acre campus in the Madison countryside.
