Providence Hall, a college preparatory school for grades 7-12, has announced a merit scholarship program for newly admitted students.

The Providence Hall Headmaster’s Scholarship is offered to incoming students who have demonstrated a high degree of achievement in one or more of the following areas: academics, music, art, drama, Christian service, or leadership in church or the community.

The Headmaster’s Scholarship award is $2,500 per year and can be renewed annually for the course of the recipient’s enrollment at Providence Hall, provided the student demonstrates a continued pursuit of excellence. The total award may amount to as much as $15,000 if a student attends Providence Hall for six years.

“Students are powerfully influenced by the quality and character of fellow students,” said Dr. David Winter, headmaster of Providence Hall. “As we attract even more outstanding students, the entire student body exhibits greater initiative in learning, increased leadership skills and stronger personal character. It’s contagious!”
