McQuaid awards academic scholarships to both middle school and high school applicants based on entrance exam scores. To qualify, a student must take one of the entrance exams administered in November, December, January, or February. There are no separate or additional applications for these scholarships. Scholarship recipients must achieve Second Honors throughout the year in order to maintain their scholarship.
Saint Francis Xavier Scholarships
Saint Francis Xavier (Xavier) Scholarships are awarded to the top 10 prospective student scorers on the middle school entrance exam. If awarded, the student will receive a $500 scholarship for each of his years in the middle school, and therefore, can receive a maximum of $1,500.
Saint Ignatius Loyola Scholarships
Saint Ignatius Loyola (Loyola) Scholarships are awarded to the top 5 prospective student scorers on the high school entrance exam. If awarded, the student will receive a $1,000 scholarship for each of his years in the high school, and therefore, can receive a maximum of $4,000.
An additional five Loyola scholarships are awarded to current McQuaid eighth graders who sit for the high school entrance exam (optional) scheduled for the last day of midterm exam week.
For more information on the scholarship program, please contact Mr. Cory Parker, director of enrollment management.
