The Elizabeth I. Legenhausen Scholarship and the F. Karl Adler Scholarships were established for new students entering Grades 3-8 to honor academic excellence. Each offers a one half-tuition award for one year.

Both scholarships are designed to encourage and reward:

  • academic prowess
  • intellectual promise, and
  • innate curiosity



Each candidate must be a new student to SJA entering Grades 3-8 who is distinguished in scholastic ability, achievement, and school citizenship.

The application form must be submitted along with one letter of recommendation (from within the student’s current school community) and a letter from the student’s parent requesting consideration.

A personal interview with the Head of School will be arranged for selected candidates.
