Community Enrichment Scholarships

Navigation

Throughout King School’s history, the school has sought to enroll the most capable and talented students from a wide range of economic backgrounds. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to offer need-based scholarships to students who enrich our community in alignment with our strategic goals:

  • Academic Excellence

  • Athletics

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

  • Community Partnerships

  • Institutional Identity

  • Strategic Enrollment Management

Community Enrichment Scholarships are multi-year commitments in order to support a student through a certain division or until graduation. Every year, we seek to replace scholarships that are ending and create new scholarships to benefit the King School community.

Our current Community Enrichment Scholarships are:

Amadeo Family Scholarship

Established in 2021 by the Amadeo family to support an academically and STEM-focused student entering in Grade 6 annually until graduation.

The Fullerton Scholar-Athlete Scholarship

Established by the Fullerton Family to support an Upper School scholar-athlete, recommended by King Coaching Staff, for 4 consecutive years.

King School Athletics Scholarship
