Senior Scholarships






PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality. One of the ways we support Andrews students reach their full potential is through continuing education.


Each year, Andrews PTA awards scholarships to eligible high school seniors. In keeping with our work in building strong family-school partnerships, our scholarship process focuses on the impact an applicant's family, teachers, and PTA have had on their goals to continue their education or training. 


The scholarship awards are given during a Senior Reception / Social towards the end of the school year, where former Eagles have a chance to visit with old friends, teachers and staff.
