Northshore Christian Grammar School are currently offering an Academic Scholarship program for students entering Year 7.
Year 7 Academic Scholarships
At Northshore, we strive for excellence and launched our Academic Scholarships when Year 7 commenced in 2018. Students awarded an academic scholarship receive partial (25%) remission from academic tuition fees for three years until the end of Year 9. In the coming years we intend to offer further scholarships for senior secondary school, commencing when Year 10 begins in 2021.
The awarding of scholarships is determined by results in the ACER Scholarship examination, a series of academic ability tests used by Independent schools to select scholarship recipients, followed by a successful interview.
The number of scholarships is limited, and testing for Year 7, 2019 takes place on Saturday the 10th of March, 2018. You can register on the ACER website by clicking here and following the instructions (select Level One for the Year 7 test). Please note a fee of $93, payable to ACER, applies. Applications for 2019 scholarships close at 10pm on Thursday the 22nd of February, 2018.
We intend to continue this program for students entering Year 7 in 2020. More information regarding this will be posted in late 2018.
Music, Sport and Christian Service Scholarships
As we grow into our High School years, we seek to reward the significant effort and sacrifices made by families to pursue excellence in music, sport, and service to others. In addition to providing flexible learning programmes that support students to succeed, we will be seeking to grant scholarships on a case-by-case basis where students are ongoing participants in state or national-level competitions or gain recognition from organaistions and peak bodies of their endeavour. Examples might include regular participation in national sporting competitions or membership and regular performances with state youth orchestras.
Northshore places great value on community service and the growth that it instills. A limited number of scholarships are also available for students that have dedicated significant time to improving the lives of others through service. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from the charity organization or church detailing the student’s contribution. The merits of each application will be considered individually and if suitable, candidates will be invited to interview. Examples might include leading a youth community outreach program or youth ambassadorships for organisations such as Telethon.
In middle school, scholarships of 25% of tuition fees are awarded in recognition of the time and financial burden placed on families to support their children to pursue these ventures, which encourage personal excellence and the shaping of character. Please contact our Principal for more information.
