There are several
scholarships available for private high school students. While some of
these pay tuition only, others pay other expenses, too, such as books.
Most of these are need-based, though some are merit-based, too. Also
check our other pages navigating through the buttons on the left hand
side of this website, through which you can find scholarships that are
more generic in nature. On this page, we list only those scholarships
that are relevant to "private high schools:"
1) Children's Scholarship Fund (CSF):
tuition assistance for low income students to go to private schools,
including private high schools. More than 29,000 children use CSF funds
every year throughout the USA. CSF pays, on average, 50% of tuition
costs. Eligible families should demonstrate financial need.
though that this is not just for high school students, but also for
elementary and middle school students.
Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Schoolarships:
for students throughout the USA. Applications are open to students in
seventh grade to receive funding in high school (grades 9 to 12). There
is about 7.5% chances of winning one of these scholarships, and
students from families with no more than $25,000 income have higher
chances. In certain cases, the scholars could continue receiving
support through college and sometimes graduate school, too. Strong
academic record is important (generally a GPA of 3.5 or above).
A Better Chance:
talented minority students across the United States. Students are
selected based on the following criteria: The student must (1) perform
consistently at or above his or her grade year, (2) have a GPA of B+ or
above, and (3) be ranked at the top 10% of the class. as part
the application process, students are also required to take a
standardized test (Fee vaiwers are provided for the test). The fund
does not have a cut-off for standardized tests, but these, too, are
taken into consideration in assessing the academic talent of
applicants. Participating extracurricular activities in and
outside of the school increases chances of winning. Demonstration of
good leadership skills is also an important factor. Each student goes
through an interview of about 15 minutes.
addition to the more generic scholarships above, there are some
regional private high school scholarships: Currently, we have
scholarship listings available for the following US states. Check back
for other states since more resources are added regularly (Some of
these are in progress; state names will be made clickable when ready):
