Academic Scholarship Applications for years 5, 7 and 11 in 2021

close Thursday, 3 April 2020

with Scholarship Exam on Saturday, 6 April 2020.

 

Clarence Valley Anglican School (CVAS) Scholarships will be provided at the discretion of the Principal and will reflect the School's Strategic Plan, Anglican Church ethos and the CVAS Scholarship Management Plan.  The CVAS Scholarship Program will support the school's diverse community engagement.  

 

The CVAS Scholarship Program will not only provide an opportunity to recognise engagement with the Anglican Church, academic achievement or excellence in a specific area, but will also include those applicants who would benefit from a CVAS education within a safe and inclusive learning environment and whom, without financial assistance, would be unable to attend the School.  

 

Scholarships will be available to students enrolling in Kindergarten to Year 12. While there are specific entry points (Kindergarten, Years 5, 7 and 11) applications will generally be considered at any year level and at any time within the school year. 

 

CVAS Scholarships are awarded as a percentage of the appropriate level tuition fee for the duration of a student’s enrolment in the Primary School or the Secondary School, provided all conditions upon which the scholarship was awarded are met. CVAS’s inclusive fee structure ensures all ‘normal’ costs associated with a student’s education are contained within the tuition fees. 

 

Academic Scholarships

 

CVAS is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and creative learning through the provision of exceptional educational programs and development opportunities across a broad range of activities.  Academic Scholarships are available for students entering Years 5, 7 and 11. 

 

CVAS utilises an internal selection process when assessing applications for Academic Scholarships. Students are selected based on their previous academic record, academic awards achieved, NAPLAN results, and are supported by an interview with the Principal.  Generally Academic scholarships will incur a maximum 50% fee discount dependent upon of the level of achievement previously indicated and maintained by the student, and the circumstances of the student's family.

 

Applicants will need to provide a completed CVAS Scholarship Application form, an introductory letter (age cognisant) in the applicant’s own handwriting, stating why they would like to attend CVAS and why they would be a worthy candidate for a Scholarship. 

Cathedral Scholarships

 

Cathedral Scholarships are available for students entering any year at any time with an emphasis on entry level years of Kindergarten and Year 7 and will primarily comprise of children whose families demonstrate an active connection with the Cathedral and Diocese.

Cathedral Scholarships will incur a maximum 50% fee discount dependent upon the individual student’s family circumstances and level of involvement as recommended by the Dean of the Cathedral. 

Community Based Scholarships 

 

Community based scholarships are available for students entering any year at any time with an emphasis on entry level years of Kindergarten and Year 7.  The aim of community based scholarships is to increase engagement with the Clarence Valley community, broaden the diversity of the CVAS student population and to improve the circumstances of individual students.  This aim will be achieved by providing the opportunity for students with limited financial means or in other difficult social circumstances to receive an education in a caring and safe environment that exemplifies the community and social values of both CVAS and the Anglican Church.  

 

Community based scholarships can be directly applied for by the individual student and their parents or by nomination from a recognised indigenous and other community organisation or body including local religious ministries.  Nomination letters will need to include an introduction of the nominated student, an explanation of how the student and the community would benefit from the provision of a CVAS education for the nominee, and any special circumstances of the student and their family that warrant additional consideration.   

 

Students nominated will be required to formally accept the nomination and to make an application.  Applications will include completion of the CVAS Scholarship Application form, an introductory letter (age cognisant) in the applicant’s own handwriting, stating why they would like to attend CVAS and why they make a worthy candidate for a Community Based Scholarship.  Assistance with the application process will be provided as necessary and all private information will be treated with respect and strict confidentiality.

 

Community Based Scholarships will incur a maximum 95% fee (negotiable) discount dependent upon the individual student's family circumstances.

 

General Excellence Scholarships 

 

General Excellence Scholarships are available for students entering any year level. Successful applicants will be selected on excellence in a specific area such as, but not limited to Art, Music or Sport. Students can apply directly, be nominated by an associated recognised community organisation (e.g. Sports Clubs, Indigenous Community organisations, Rotary or private Music educators) or be approached to apply as identified by the Principal.  Nominated students will be invited to become applicants and attend an interview with the Principal. 

 

Applicants will need to provide a completed CVAS Scholarship Application form, an introductory letter (age cognisant) in the applicant’s own handwriting, stating why they would like to attend CVAS and why they would be a worthy candidate for a Scholarship.
