Blue Ridge School's Baron Scholarship Program offers substantial scholarships to boys applying for the 9th grade who exemplify character and leadership potential.
Blue Ridge School has designated $105,000 to provide annual scholarships for qualified young men who are US citizens and rising 9th graders.
A Baron Scholarship applicant will demonstrate these qualities:
• Respect for himself and the world around him;
• An appreciation of an honor code and an understanding of his role in it;
• Experience in team activities whether athletic, academic or artistic, as well as an aspiration to gain a leadership role;
• An interest in a variety of extra-curricular activities which can include the outdoors, community service and faith-based activities.
Interested applicants will complete:
• A BRS application and a Baron Scholarship Supplemental Application;
• An essay on his interest in BRS and the qualities he can bring to the school (included in the supplemental application);
• A campus visit with his parents for a day of tours, interviews and meetings with faculty, administrators and Trustees.
• Candidates must be referred to the school by a qualified source (educational consultant, school counselor or teacher, current or former BRS parent, alumnus or friend). To nominate a candidate please complete this form.
While good grades and the ability to maintain them are important, the applicant's character and potential for leadership will carry significantly more weight in the scholarship decisions.
Baron Scholarships may be renewed annually, once awarded, based on the student's good performance within the parameters of the program.
The awards will be offered on or before June 15th.
The deadline to accept the award is June 30th.

"AS A HISTORY TEACHER, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR MY STUDENTS TO SEE THE PLACES THAT WE SPEND SO MUCH TIME TALKING ABOUT IN THE CLASSROOM. IT WOULD BE A SHAME NOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THE HISTORICAL SITES AROUND US IN CENTRAL VIRGINIA; THE ANNUAL FUND MAKES DOING SO POSSIBLE."
