Hill-Murray School works with many generous donors to secure private scholarship support. Last year, hundreds of students received scholarships. The number of students receiving scholarship support is constantly increasing as the school continues its scholarship fundraising.
Students are matched to scholarship opportunities based on the primary and secondary factors laid out below.
- Academic performance
- Grade point average
- Standardized test scores
- Calculated Need as defined by the TADS process (for need-based scholarship opportunities only)
Individual circumstances such as those listed below are also considered as part of the overall assessment of each application and may factor into individual scholarship decisions. Enrolling a diverse student body is essential to our schools’ mission. The Hill-Murray School community is strengthened by our students representing different races, economic backgrounds, geographic origins, genders, religions, ethnicities, sexualities, talents, and beliefs.
Our review also takes into consideration the individual circumstances that make each student unique. We consider the following secondary factors in our review.
- Outstanding talent, achievement, or aptitude in a particular area
- Strong commitment to community service and leadership
- Contribution to the cultural, gender, age, economic, racial, or geographic diversity of the student body
- Evidence of having overcome social, economic, or physical barriers to gain educational achievement
- Family attendance at Hill-Murray School
- Personal or extenuating circumstances
