The Bennett Scholars Program

A bedrock of the school’s mission, The Bennett Scholars Program supports high-achieving motivated girls who attend under-resourced elementary schools and often represent the first generation in their families to attend college. In addition to tuition, Bennett Scholars receive lunches, transportation, uniforms, one-on-one tutoring, and the costs of all trips and materials.
