Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School is committed to a superior academic program that promotes the intellectual, spiritual, and physical development of its students. Because of this, Gwynedd is pleased to offer scholarships to young ladies who qualify.
Scholarships are offered to students who take the Entrance-Scholarship Exam that is administered at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School. Students must take the exam at Gwynedd to be eligible for our scholarships. Scholarships are renewable for all four years.

The ideal candidates will follow the audition guidelines on the page linked below. Here, you can also find information about scholarship recipient requirements.

The Alumnae Association of Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School funds a scholarship that is open to prospective freshman students with familial relationships to graduates or current students of Gwynedd. The scholarship honors the traditions of Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School and the work of the Alumnae Association in supporting and enhancing those traditions. In addition, an important goal of the Legacy Scholarship is to assist an incoming freshman student who might otherwise be unable to attend Gwynedd.
One Legacy Scholarship will be available for award to an incoming member of the freshman class who is accepted by the Admissions Office.

After the Admissions Office receives the Entrance-Scholarship Exam scores, we will work with the Admissions Committee and Arts Departments to determine how many students will be interviewed for each scholarship, based on scores and a brief review of each student's file. The Admissions Office will then call to schedule an interview with each student. Legacy and Maguire Scholarships do not require interviews. Please see the description on this page for more information.
Applicants who receive a scholarship in the first round are notified via phone, with follow-up documentation in the mail. Any student who interviews for an Academic, Art, or Music Scholarship and does not receive it in the first round, will get an email. All scholarship offers are made in mid-November, and families are asked to accept the awards before Thanksgiving. If a student does not accept an award, Gwynedd will look to re-award the scholarship to another student if possible.
