Centennial Scholarship Program

The Centennial Scholarship is open to all students applying to grade nine whose families qualify for need-based financial aid. Winners receive a $2,000 annual stipend as well as an annual financial aid award for tuition to meet up to 100% of demonstrated need as reported by School and Student Services.
The Centennial Scholarship program is made possible through the generosity of a group of Shipley families who wish to encourage motivated, well-rounded and intellectually talented students to attend the school.
