Students singing in choir performance

St. Cecilia Music Scholarship

Awards Vary

Eligibility: 5th - 8th grade students

The St. Cecilia Music Scholarship recognizes students for their vocal talents. It also affords students a unique opportunity to connect with our choir director, Mr. Chalmers and to collaborate with members of the Chesterton Academy choir.

Requirements

To be eligible to receive this award, a student must complete two steps:

  1. Join Chesterton Academy for our choir rehearsal and spring concert! Rehearsal is usually one or two days in advance of the concert and lasts about an hour and a half. Your student will learn one or two songs to perform with the Chesterton Academy choir at our spring concert. We also send the music in advance for students to practice at home. This can be done anytime during the student's 5th - 8th grade year.
  2. Once the student has reached their 8th grade year, he or she will audition for the scholarship.

Please note, 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.
