Academic Scholarship Program

Academic Scholarship Program

Bayside Academy believes in honoring the gifts and talents of dedicated students and has created an Academic Scholarship Program for incoming 9th grade students from outside schools. These scholarships are merit-based for students with demonstrated financial need. The scholarships will not exceed 50% of the value of tuition and may be used in conjunction with tuition assistance. If awarded, scholarships are renewable annually contingent upon maintaining outstanding academic performance and demonstrating exemplary character as determined by Bayside Academy.

New students applying to the 9th grade may apply to be considered for the Academic Scholarship for the 2023–2024 school year. Please contact Admissions at admissions@baysideacademy.org before beginning an application.
