Students entering grades 3 through 6 are eligible to apply for our Peregrine Elementary scholarships. We offer scholarships to students that show academic promise and are highly motivated to attend Peregrine. The scholarships provide half off the annual tuition and is continued for each year the child is enrolled at the school, contingent on satisfactory academic performance and social behavior.
The number of scholarship recipients depends on the number of applicants and school funding. Please note that scholarship recipients are not eligible for sibling discounts, and that Flexible Tuition and scholarship awards cannot be combined.
Peregrine School values students who are individualistic, and who have a passion for learning. Because we have a rigorous program in science, the arts, humanities, and social and environmental responsibility, our goal is to find committed and talented students who can make maximum use of the opportunities this program offers.
The challenge is designed to enable students to demonstrate these qualities. To apply for the scholarship, submit a composition that addresses the following questions:
Who am I?
What are my particular passions and interests?
What can I contribute to the Peregrine school community?
Student submissions will be judged using a rubric that considers the following elements, all of which are central to Peregrine’s mission:
Quality of content
Evidence of a passion for learning
Good organization and presentation
The composition may be in any medium or combination of media. For example, it can be a short film, a written essay, or photo essay. While it is acceptable for the student to obtain limited support from adults or other children, the composition must clearly be prepared and executed by the student. There is no specific restriction on the amount of content; generally, a text should be no more than five pages, a film no more than five minutes.
Please submit the composition in a form that is ready to review to our Admissions Administrator at our South campus office, located at 2650 Lillard Drive. The submission deadline for the 2020-2021 school year is March 11, 2020. If it is an essay, please submit a printed copy. If it is a film or photo study, please submit it on electronic storage (disc or thumb drive).
After submission, the candidate will be interviewed by the School Director and an elementary teacher. If you have questions, contact our Admissions Administrator via or (530) 753-5500.
