New Student Scholarships

Recognizing talents and initiative of Mount’s incoming and continuing students

About New Student Scholarships

Mount Saint Charles Academy has established a fund to  support new scholarships for first-year and continuing students. This initial $50,000 will create six new scholarships that will be awarded to students who will contribute to and elevate Mount’s school culture in the areas of leadership, performing arts, service, environmental awareness, and intellectual curiosity.

Scholarships for new students are available to all incoming students in grades 6-12 and will be awarded in two rounds. The first round closes on January 14, 2022.

Monsignor Charles Dauray Scholarship

Intelligence can be exhibited in many ways. Perhaps it is through high academic standing, through a problem an individual has worked to solve, through an invention or through a visionary mindset.  This scholarship, named for Monsignor Dauray, who took initiative to advance Mount Saint Charles, will be awarded to individuals who excel academically and take initiative to solve problems. 

Applicants will be asked to answer this prompt:  Identify a time where you took initiative to solve a problem. How did you come to a solution?

St. Aloysius Gonzaga Leadership Scholarship

From the athletic field to leading a club or organization, this scholarship will be given to a selected individual or individuals who have shown leadership qualities and can articulate how these qualities will positively impact the Mount community. 

Applicants will be asked to answer the prompt, “How have I led in the past and how can my leadership shape the future?”

St. Catherine of Siena Scholarship

Mounties use their gifts and talents to serve others. This scholarship supports students who are involved with activities outside of the traditional classroom setting. Whether it be scouting, athletics or participation in a church youth group, we value the experiences students bring to our Mount community.

Applicants will be asked to answer the prompt: What gifts and talents do you possess? How have your experiences outside of the classroom shaped who you are?

St. Genesius Scholarship for Artistic Excellence

Those blessed with a gift in the arts are encouraged to apply for this scholarship that will be awarded in recognition of artistic excellence in creative writing, dance, drama, music or visual art. Chosen recipients of this scholarship must enroll in at least one arts class (band, dance, chorus, visual art…) for the 22-23 school year.

Applicants are asked to share their artistic gift in a visual or auditory form.

St. Vincent de Paul Service Scholarship

Saint Vincent de Paul said, “Charity is the cement that binds Communities to God and persons to one another…”. This scholarship will be awarded to individuals that have shown charity through past actions and have a plan to bind the Mount community through charitable acts in the years to come. 

Applicants will be asked to share ways in which service has impacted them and how they will work to bind the Mount community to the community at large through charitable acts.

St. Francis of Assisi Scholarship

The Saint Francis of Assisi scholarship recognizes students who care for the environment and are environmentally conscious. Recipients of this scholarship will be asked to commit to service in the Mount garden and participate in the Earth Crew for the 22-23 school year. 

Genesis 2:15 states, “ Humans are commanded to care for God’s creation.” Applicants are asked to write a short essay explaining ways they have shown care for God’s creation and the importance of these acts.
