Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s performance on the entrance exam, and are available to all prospective McQuaid Jesuit students. Saint Francis Xavier (Xavier) Scholarships are awarded to the top ten students applying for admission to the middle school. These $500 scholarships are awarded for each of a student’s years at McQuaid Jesuit middle school, and therefore, are worth a maximum total of $1,500. Saint Ignatius Loyola (Loyola) Scholarships are awarded to the top five prospective students who take the high school Entrance Exam. These $1,000 scholarships exist for a maximum of four years at McQuaid Jesuit high school, and therefore, are worth up to $4,000. In order for prospective students to qualify for these scholarships, they must take one of the entrance exams administered in November and December. There are also an additional five Loyola scholarships awarded to current eighth graders in the McQuaid Jesuit middle school who sit for the 9th grade entrance exam (optional) scheduled for the last day of mid-term exam week.
There are no separate or additional applications for Xavier or Loyola Scholarships. Rather, McQuaid Jesuit awards academic scholarships strictly based on the results of the entrance exams. All Xavier and Loyola Scholars must consistently achieve Second Honors throughout the year in order to maintain their scholarship award.
