*The GPA and test score criteria listed above are averages for the recipients of each scholarship. Admitted students are automatically awarded the highest academic scholarship they are eligible to receive based on their combination of weighted GPA and SAT or ACT super score. For students who choose to do an admissions interview rather than submit test scores, academic scholarships will be based on weighted GPA alone. And for students enrolled in a non-accredited home-school program, academic scholarships will be based on SAT or ACT super score alone. Students may submit updated transcripts or test scores through April 1 to be considered for scholarship upgrades.
