Middle School Merit Scholarship
Featured in the Fall 2023 issue of Independent School magazine, MAC's Middle School is one of the nation’s first purpose-based middle schools. As students engage in rigorous preparation for high school, they do so with an integrated and meaningful purpose-based curriculum that fosters a greater sense of self and contribution to the outside world.
MAC Middle is aligned with the unique developmental needs of early adolescents. Our small, nurturing school community ensures each student is deeply known and understood; our program empowers them to be confident thinkers and doers who emerge as leaders in high school and beyond. In order to make this unique 6th - 8th grade experience available to more students, MAC offers a limited number of Merit Scholarships that are not based on financial need for rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
Merit Scholarships are awarded to continuing and new MAC 6th - 8th grade students who demonstrate readiness to fully engage in MAC’s purpose-based program.
- Innovative Academics - Thinking: demonstrate a strong academic background and/or high propensity for success at MAC Middle
- Exploration of Character - Feeling: demonstrate character by having contributed in a meaningful way to a community of which they have previously been a part and/or engagement in self-reflection
- Fearless, Forward Mindset - Doing: demonstrate leadership experience or potential and/or interest in doing meaningful work
