At Meadowridge School we are committed to growing the diversity of our student population and enrich our own community through a scholarship for deserving students. At the same time we recognize that many well-rounded, academically-strong students may not have the financial means to explore all the educational options available.
As such we are pleased to offer a scholarship for students who wish to complete their High School years at Meadowridge School and go on to "live well, with others and for others, in a just community".
Please note: This scholarship is not open to students or the siblings of students currently enrolled at Meadowridge School.
