Congratulations to Lila Almeida and Olivia Littlejohn who have been awarded the St. Mark’s Merit Scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year! Lila is a currently enrolled St. Mark’s student and received a full-tuition scholarship. Olivia, a newly accepted St. Mark’s student, received a half-tuition scholarship. Lila and Olivia received the highest and second highest SSAT scores out of all the rising 6th graders who applied. Students were required to take the SSAT test by January 2018 to qualify. Once a student receives the award, maintaining the scholarship is contingent upon the student achieving Honor Roll or Head of School status every quarter and exhibiting exemplary behavior during his or her tenure at St. Mark’s. Congratulations to both girls on this outstanding achievement! For those interested in applying for the 2019-2020 merit scholarships, you must register for next year’s SSAT. For more information, please contact Laura Minor, Director of Admissions.
