Academic Scholarships

Villa Maria awards merit-based Academic Scholarships. To be an Academic Scholarship candidate, applicants typically must score in the 98th percentile or above on our Entrance–Scholarship Exam and demonstrate strong academic achievement in the classroom.

Applicants are notified if they are scholarship candidates when they receive the results of the Entrance–Scholarship Exam. Scholarship candidates are then asked to schedule an interview with the Admissions Office.

An application must be on file in the Admissions Office before a student can be considered for a scholarship.

IHM Charism Scholarships

Villa Maria offers IHM Charism Scholarships. These partial four-year scholarships are awarded to applicants who strongly demonstrate one or more of the ideals of the IHM charism—fidelity, creative hope, and love. Leadership, service, character, and academic performance are also considered.

Scholarship applications are provided to the principals of our partner Catholic schools in the fall. The principals can each nominate one student for this scholarship.

An application must be on file in the Admissions Office before a student can be considered for a scholarship.
