Laguna Blanca School Offers Full High School Scholarship Opportunity

Ninth-grade applicants with financial needs are eligible for consideration as Whittier Scholars

The Whittier Scholars Program offers advanced educational opportunities for academically qualified, motivated students to attend Laguna Blanca School. The yearly merit scholarship is based upon financial need and will cover full tuition, books, class trips and fees during the recipient’s high school career at Laguna Blanca.

A Whittier Scholar recipient is a student of uncommon ability and talents; a student who possesses the skills, flexibility and confidence to meet with enthusiasm the demands and challenges of the future and who will push the edge of change to invent solutions.

The Whittier family, one of Southern California’s pioneer families, has a long history of supporting educational programs in Southern California communities. The family recognizes that intelligent, talented students are important resources to society, and that the best students invigorate the academic and social climate of a school. The Whittier family has made an enduring commitment to prepare young people for academic success, leadership and citizenship in our communities and the world.

Laguna Blanca School is an independent, K-12 college-preparatory day school with a 75-year tradition of excellence in Santa Barbara. At Laguna Blanca, students achieve their highest academic potential by reaching beyond familiarity to discovery and beyond self to social responsibility and ethical leadership.

Every prospective ninth-grade applicant to Laguna Blanca School who demonstrates financial need is considered for the Whittier Scholars Program. There is no separate application process.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
