The goal of the Keystone Scholarship Program is to renew scholarships for all years of high school for the awarded students. Annual scholarship renewal decisions are made based on the student’s engagement and academic progress and will be determined on a yearly basis. To be eligible for renewal, students must meet the following criteria:
Maintain at least a 3.0 GPA(HS) or average letter grade of B(MS) for each scholarship year
Maintain course pacing requirements, completing courses on time without extensions
Meet student activity requirements as identified in the Student Activity Policy
Participate in all mentoring meetings and activities unless excused by the mentor
