Student Awards

Student Awards

Our alumni tell us their experiences at the Edge School were life changing. Unfortunately, for some students and their families, the finances of an independent school education can be a significant barrier. Each year, over 25% of Edge students qualify to receive some level of financial assistance to offset tuition costs.

The Edge Foundation Student Awards Program provides both need-based and merit-based awards to new and continuing students. The majority of student awards program funds are directed to financial aid through Opportunity Awards, with priority given to students currently receiving an award. Achievement Awards recognize the exceptional student achievement throughout the school year.

Opportunity Awards

Edge Opportunity Awards are awarded to students requiring financial assistance who exhibit sound academic and athletic achievement, good character, and a capacity to make a worthwhile contribution to the School. Edge Opportunity Awards are available to new and continuing students. The Student Awards Application Form must be completed annually for continuing students and submitted by January 31. New student applications will be considered beginning February 1.

Opportunity Awards are awarded based on acceptable academic standing, with financial need as the primary requirement.

  • New students must complete a successful academic review.
  • Continuing students must have maintained satisfactory academic standing in the previous year.
  • Students must also demonstrate adherence to Edge School’s LEAD Model (leadership, effort, attitude, dignity).
