Academic Scholarships

Chaminade offers academic scholarships for incoming students based on their academic achievement and standardized test scores.  These scholarships are renewable each year a student attends Chaminade so long as they maintain an A- average.  There is no application for these scholarships; academic transcripts will provide sufficient information. 

High School Applicants who score between the 93rd and 99th percentile composite on a nationally-standardized test (Iowa Basics, Stanford Achievement, etc.)and achieve an A- average or higher on their core academic classes will receive an academic scholarship for their incoming year.  Academic scholarships range from $1,000 to $7,000, beginning at $1,000 for a 93% and increase a thousand dollars for each percentile increase.  No additional application is necessary to complete.  Freshman applicants must list Chaminade as their first choice school on the Archdiocesan Application form.  These scholarships are renewable each year a student attends Chaminade so long as they maintain at least a 90% average.
