Schleyer Scholarship is a fully-funded, four-year scholarship for two new students applying to the ninth grade who showcase extraordinary academic achievement and distinctive talents in one or more of the following areas: arts, athletics, community service, or leadership. Additionally, Schleyer Scholarship applicants must qualify for the Flexible Tuition Program to be eligible.
