Gabriel Academic Scholarships

Gabriel Academic Scholarship

The Gabriel Academic Scholarship is applicable to students entering Year 7 or Year 11.

The scholarship is offered to students who demonstrate academic excellence. Successful academic scholars will be known to teaching staff and opportunities to extend their learning will be offered to them including:

  • Trips and excursions, in Australia and overseas, involving academic or sporting cultural engagement
  • Workshops through our Green Room Program
  • Entry into academic and co-curricular competitions and the chance to compete at a regional, national and international level

This is in addition to the normal School curriculum and co-curricular work expected of the scholar.

Scholarship recipients are not required to pay the Gabriel Foundation Standard Family Contribution.

The scholarship is reviewed on an annual basis and it is the School’s expectation that recipients of academic scholarships maintain a high academic standard throughout their schooling and represent the School as and when requested.

The School reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship from any scholarship holder.
