Each year, the College Counseling Department and a school nominating committee designates rising Sixes for prestigious Scholarships at colleges and universities across the country and in some cases other countries. These scholarships offer significant benefits to a student in an age where merit-based scholarships are becoming less common, and often offer awards up to the full cost of attendance, not just full tuition. Students who are most competitive for these nominations are usually high achievers in all academic areas with unweighted GPA's above 3.7 or 92, SAT scores above 1300 or ACT above 29, stellar community citizenship without disciplinary issues, and noteworthy performances in extracurriculars or other initiatives. These students are selected with confidence in representing St. Timothy's School extremely well in an international pool of highly talented nominees. 
 
In some instances, a form of application internally to College Counseling may be required, to have students indicate their interest in being considered for one or more of these scholarships. Speak with the Director of College Counseling for current information on the process. Following the recommended testing strategy to accomplish a SAT or ACT testing record before the end of Fives year is also an important step in a student positioning themselves for such consideration.
