Merit Scholarships

Merit Scholarship Program

Norfolk Collegiate has a proud tradition of well-rounded student-scholars who demonstrate initiative, integrity and determination. To recognize exceptional students coming into the school, we have established the Norfolk Collegiate Merit Scholar program, which awards two merit-based scholarships for 50 percent off tuition to incoming ninth-grade students who are first-time applicants to Norfolk Collegiate.

To become a Norfolk Collegiate Merit Scholar, a new student must demonstrate exceptional intelligence, character and academic promise, and the student must be willing to share his or her talents to enrich the Norfolk Collegiate community through enthusiastic participation and leadership in the performing or fine arts, athletics, service, citizenship or our other extracurricular offerings.
