The announcement of needs-based scholarships application is done in April by the Administration. The interested families apply on line and turn in their files with the required documents. The applicants’ statuses are reviewed by the school’s scholarship committee. The students must have been on the discipline committee and his/her previous GPA should be at least 60 out of 100. Scholarships are awarded based upon an overall score on a number of criteria, which are written and revised by the SEV Foundation.
The scholarships are given on an annual basis and are not an earned right.
2. Merit Scholarships
At the end of grades 5, 6 and 7:
Merit scholarships are given to promote academic and social excellence in the students, encourage their positive contribution to school life. In grades 5, 6, and 7, merit scholarships (35% of the tuition fee) are provided to five students who rank highest (with a minimum of 90 GPA) among those students at that grade level. Besides the grade averages, those students awarded merit scholarship are expected to participate at minimum in one school activity and receive no discipline consequences. Merit scholarships are given on an annual basis, if the student fulfills the requirements, s/he may be awarded the scholarship in subsequent years. A student who earns the merit scholarship may still apply for the needs-based scholarship.
At the end of grade 8:
The five students who have the highest (with a minimum of 90 GPA) GPA average of grades 5-6-7 and 8, there is merit scholarship opportunity (35% of the tuition fee) at ACI for the prep year only, if they choose to continue their education there. If there is a tie with the GPAs, the entrance points taken at the national high school entrance exams are taken into consideration, the higher gets the scholarship.
