To be eligible for the Catholic Scholar Award, a student must:

Nomination Instructions

If you feel your child may be eligible to receive this award, please send our nomination form to your student's principal or teacher.

Each school may nominate one male and one female student in 6th grade and one male and female student in 7th grade per year. Students may only be nominated for this award once, so if two students were nominated as 6th graders, two additional members of their class may be nominated as 7th graders.

If a teacher or principal feels that more than two candidates are qualified per grade in a given year, he or she may reach out to our admissions director, Jeff Mitchell, at jmitchell@chestertonacademy.org.

Please note, the Peacemaker Award and the Catholic Scholar Award cannot be awarded to the same student.

Scholarship priority is given to families who complete the admissions process prior to Dec. 31 of the student's 8th grade year. The award will be applied to the recipient's tuition freshman year.
