Students will automatically be considered for merit scholarships when they apply. We continue to add new scholarships every year to acknowledge students and their hard work. In 2015 we expanded our scholarship offerings to include AP Capstone and International Baccalaureate (IB) scholarships. The goal of these new scholarships is to recognize students for their willingness to take the difficult road to graduation – rather than focusing on a test score or GPA. It is their intrinsic drive to push the envelope and challenge themselves in high school that make these students stand out – the same way our students do at Queens.
