For over 25 years, the Merit Scholarship Program (https://www.gardenschool.org/open-house-and-merit-scholarship-exam-sat-december-5th-900-am/) has allowed Garden to offer placement to students and families to everyone’s mutual benefit. Registrations for the 2015 exam were among the highest ever, and we were in the gratifying position of offering over two dozen scholarships to terrific students and welcoming many new families into our excellent educational community.
We congratulate especially this year’s full scholarship winners. Asia Chen and Michael O’Sullivan will be starting in sixth grade at Garden School next year. Thanks to their superior exam scores, excellent school transcripts and strong interviews, they will attend Garden School tuition-free until they graduate.
Asia is a student at PS 21 who loves to write and enjoys performing in her chorus group, dance classes and studying the piano. She is looking forward to the musical theater opportunities at Garden School as well as the chance to study French. Michael also loves to write and reads a couple of books a week! He is looking forward to the small classes and also the use of the swimming pool and playing on the Garden basketball team. We know that they will be making positive contributions to the Garden School community for many years to come.
“The Merit Program allows us to find and support students and families who are engaged in their own education and be successful at Garden School,” says Headmaster Dr. Richard Marotta. “Also, those students that are involved in extracurricular activities bring that enthusiasm to enrich all of us. Michael and Asia and their respective families are true ‘win-win’ situations for us and we are delighted to welcome them to Garden.”
Like these families, we encourage you to take the Exam in the future. If your child scores well, he or she could be a future Merit Scholarship winner and join the Garden School.
