Scholarship Information

It is the mission of St. Anne’s School of Annapolis to invest in the intellectual and spiritual promise of each student in a community that celebrates diversity and values the dignity of every human being. In addition to offering need-based financial aid, we also offer merit- and need-based scholarships to incoming Sixth and Seventh Grade students for the purpose of providing an excellent educational opportunity for academically talented students who might not otherwise be able to attend our school. Eligible students will be considered for both scholarships, however only one scholarship will be awarded per student.

Future Leaders Scholarship (Merit-Based)
The Future Leaders Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship. Families of applicants are not required to submit a financial aid application. It is designed for students who have demonstrated academic excellence and leadership potential and who could benefit from our challenging, inquiry-based academic program.

  • be enrolled in a school other than St. Anne’s School of Annapolis
  • score in the top quartile on standardized achievement tests
  • have a demonstrated record of high academic achievement
  • have exhibited leadership potential and/or a commitment to serve the community

Our Selection Committee will review and evaluate applications based on academic achievement, in-school and community extracurricular activities, recommendations of adults in the student’s life, and the student’s own story.
