Each year many Colorado Academy Seniors are awarded merit scholarships by the institutions to which they apply. In most cases, their awards are not based on additional scholarship applications but awarded solely on the basis of their application for admission. In addition, some students apply for outside scholarships through local or national foundations, which, if they are awarded, can be applied to any institution they choose to attend.
Below is a summary of the merit scholarships and special honors that have been reported to the College Office by students and parents in the Class of 2022—these listed awards are only those that students will be using in the upcoming year. Please note that many more merit scholarships were awarded to CA Seniors at institutions that they chose not to attend.
Please join us in our heartfelt congratulations to all of these Seniors for their recognized achievements!
