Merit Scholarship Program Overview
Harbor Country Day School Merit Scholarships are available for all qualifying new students in grades five through eight. The scholarship is a discount of the standard tuition rate. Merit scholarships are for tuition only and do not apply to the other fees and charges related to attending Harbor Country Day School.
Once a Merit Scholarship award has been extended, it will apply to the tuition for each academic year the student attends Harbor Country Day School. However, while the Merit Scholarship is a multi-year proposition, it will only remain in effect if the attending student maintains an overall academic average of B or higher.
