Merit Scholarships 

Maryvale offers merit-based scholarships and awards for exceptional students. 

President's Scholarship: At least one $12,000 scholarship will be awarded to a ninth grade applicant in recognition of superior academic achievement. This will be renewable for each subsequent year — as long as the student remains in strong academic standing. All ninth grade applicants who apply by the Dec. 9 deadline are considered for this scholarship; a separate application is not required. 

Trustees' Leadership Awards: Multiple $5,000 awards will be given to ninth grade applicants in recognition of strong academic and leadership accomplishments. They will be renewable for each subsequent year — as long as students remain in strong academic standing. All ninth grade applicants who apply by the Dec. 9 deadline are considered for these awards; a separate application is not required.

Middle School Leadership Awards: Multiple $2,500 awards will be granted to Middle Schoolers whose solid academic and leadership records distinguish them from their peers.

Scholar Athlete Award: Through a generous grant from the Boosters Club, Maryvale offers an award of $1,000 to an outstanding scholar athlete, entering ninth grade. In addition to grades, participation in school athletics, recreation councils, and club teams are factors in consideration.
