Highland School offers students a demanding academic and co-curricular program that prepares them to thrive, lead, and serve in a diverse and dynamic world. Beyond a significant commitment to financial aid, Highland also offers a number of merit scholarships to attract and retain students. This year alone, Highland has committed over $3.5 million in financial and merit aid to students.
The Founders Scholarship is the most prestigious merit scholarship that Highland provides. The Founders Award recognizes students of significant academic ability and great leadership potential. While at Highland, these students have been Prefects, sports captains, play and musical leads, robotics captains, valedictorians, and salutatorians. They then matriculated to prestigious colleges including Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, and the Air Force Academy. Today, they are aerospace engineers, authors, CEOs, doctors, and surgeons. And, of course, some Founders Scholars are teachers, helping to shape the next generation of scholars and leaders.
