Under the Claiborne Scholars program, St. Andrews-Sewanee has available merit scholarships (1/2-1/4 tuition) available to new boarding 9th & 10th grade students.
Qualifying students are chosen on the basis of “a strong academic record and exhibit leadership qualities that reflect a sense of honor and a commitment to serving the community. ” Claiborne Scholars is a merit based program ” open to all families, including those who would not qualify for need-based aid..” (SA-S)
“The Claiborne Scholars program is named in honor of Archdeacon William Sterling Claiborne, whose lifetime of service included providing education and health care in the areas surrounding Sewanee. Ordained as an Episcopal priest in Sewanee in 1901, he was instrumental in the founding of St. Andrew’s School and re-establishing St. Mary’s School for Mountain girls.” (St. Andrew’s-Sewanee Offers Scholarships for Leadership, Academics & Service)
