John Paul II is offering four academic scholarship opportunities for the rising 9th grade class for the 2023/2024 school year. These scholarships are need blind and families are not required to apply for tuition assistance for their child to be eligible.
To be eligible, a current 8th grade student must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at John Paul II. All 9th grade JPII applicants are required to take the HSPT not only for scholarship purposes, but it also aids with course placement. The test is optional for current JPII rising 9th grade students and must only be taken if the family would like their child to be considered for an academic scholarship. Current JPII students must be enrolled for the 2023/2024 school year to be eligible.
All students must register for the exam by emailing email@example.com no later than January 10, 2023.
Students who score in the top 10% of those taking the test at JPII on January 21 will be considered semi-finalists and will be notified by the school by February 1. Students applying for the scholarship will then be required to submit a 250 word essay : “Why I want to become/remain a Golden Warrior. A scholarship committee consisting of the principal, a counselor, and a 9th grade teacher will then select four finalists for interviews. One of those students will be awarded the Monsignor Ronald Cellini Scholarship, consisting of a $5000 award towards tuition for each year they are enrolled at JPII, for a total of $20,000. The three remaining finalists will receive $2,500 towards their 9th grade tuition.
