Outstanding potential

The Oak Hill School Merit Scholarship was created for highly qualified Middle School and High School students who will stand out as learners and leaders. We wish to recognize substantial academic, artistic, or community achievement. These scholarships are an institutional gift and may be up to $5,000 for middle school and up to $10,000 for high school.

These awards are not need-based but rather in recognition of meritorious achievement in a myriad of fields. The scholarships are to be used for tuition at Oak Hill School. While not easily earned, these scholarships represent the honor and pride that the entire Oak Hill School community takes in our great school.

To be eligible, a student must be able to demonstrate:

Excellence and achievement in a particular field or medium

GPA of 3.5 or above

Community involvement

Qualities of leadership and character

Curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking

• up to $5,000/year for middle school
• up to $10,000/year for high school

These scholarships remain in effect for the duration of a student’s career at Oak Hill School, so long as the required standards are maintained. The awarding of a Merit Scholarship will not affect the granting of additional financial aid. Winners remain eligible for need-based Financial Aid.
