St. James Academy offers two merit scholarships, the Elizabeth I. Legenhausen Scholarship and the F. Karl Adler Scholarship.
Kaitlyn Sydnor, entering sixth grade, was awarded the Elizabeth I. Legenhausen Scholarship. Kaitlyn is a well-rounded student with a passion for athletics. She brings a positive presence to our school community. To apply for the F. Karl Adler Scholarship, please submit application materials by April 15.
Both scholarships were established for new students entering third through eighth grade to honor academic excellence and are for one half of tuition. Student recipients in good academic standing will carry the scholarships for a one-year period.
"Due to the generosity of two families whose children have graduated from St. James Academy, we are very fortunate to offer these scholarships. This is a fine example of philanthropy providing opportunities for future students," Karl Adler, Head of School, said.
Recognizing that each student brings unique strengths and talents, SJA's criteria for the scholarship are: academic prowess, intellectual promise and innate curiosity. To be considered for this scholarship, completion of the admission process is necessary. The academy will also need a letter from the student's parents requesting consideration, as well as any other pertinent information. Students will interview with the Head of School.
Originally founded in 1821 and reestablished in 1957, St. James Academy is a leading Episcopal parish day school for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. On 89 leafy acres in Monkton, the school provides vigorous preparation for high school. With this strong foundation and the support of the entire St. James community, students graduate well prepared to lead creative, compassionate and productive lives.
