Malone Scholars Program (Grades 7-10)
In May of 2012, Norfolk Academy was selected to receive a prestigious $2 million endowment award from The Malone Family Foundation. The Malone Scholars Program at Norfolk Academy provides scholarships for up to two new students entering grades seven through ten who demonstrate a consistent record of strong academic performance, qualify for at least 30% financial aid through the school’s need-based financial aid program, and who possess exceptional academic promise.
Norfolk Academy identifies up to two additional Malone Scholars each year using income from the grant, in accordance with the Malone Family Foundation’s endowment spending policy. Financial support for each Malone Scholar, in keeping with the Foundation’s guidelines, may range from 30% of tuition to full coverage. These scholarships are renewable until graduation. Since 2012, seventeen new students have been named Malone Scholars in grades seven through ten, and Norfolk Academy has awarded nearly $1 million to Malone Scholars. Former Malone Scholars currently attend Auburn University, Duke University, High Point University, James Madison University, New York University, Princeton University, and The College of William and Mary.
Covered School Expenses
The Malone endowment will fund tuition and certain other school-related expenses up to 100% of demonstrated need.
