2021 Series Scholarships for Academic Excellence:

Attention Class of 2021:  A scholarship is being offered by the State Department of Education.  In the upcoming weeks, one member of the senior class will be selected to receive a renewable $1,500 scholarship.  Three or four other seniors will receive a $500 scholarship.  The selection of the winners will be based upon performance on the Regents Exams.  By rule, the recipients will be determined by the class rank and the end of the junior year.  

Winners of this scholarship must attend a college or university in New York State to receive the award.  If you would like additional information, please see Mr. Christiansen in the Counseling Office.
