Town Scholarship

Originating in 1938, The Cheshire Academy Town Scholarship is open to students from the town of Cheshire applying for the ninth grade. The winner of this prestigious award receives a full, four-year scholarship to attend Cheshire Academy. Partial scholarships are offered to runner-up applicants.

 

For scholarship consideration, the candidate must:

 

    • Be a resident of Cheshire having lived in town for a minimum of one year.
    • Complete a personal interview by Jan. 15.
    • Submit a completed application by Jan. 15.
    • Submit, Jan. 15, an additional 400-600 word essay stating why you should be our next Town Scholar. Content may include a description of your interests, qualities, or unique life experiences that may set you apart from other students.
    • Optionally, candidates may submit to us their Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). While it is not required, we do encourage it for optimal consideration for this prestigious scholarship. If you do choose to submit the SSAT, the test must be taken before Jan. 2, 2021. (Please visit www.ssat.org for test details)
    • Complete the eighth grade by June 30, 2021.

 

We invite families interested in receiving need-based financial aid to apply through School and Student Services at www.sssbynais.org by Jan. 15. More detailed financial aid directions are available on our Tuition & Financial Aid page.
