Christian School Partner Scholarship an Exciting Opportunity for Future Students
Submitted on November 26, 2019
Recognizing a shared mission, Georgetown College is proud to announce a partnership with Lexington Christian Academy and Christian Academy of Louisville, which includes a tuition-match scholarship for students attending Georgetown College from those schools.
The Christian School Partner Scholarship will allow students from LCA and CAL to attend GC for the same cost as the current, posted twelfth-grade tuition at each institution (English Station Campus for CAL) and is renewable for four years. The tuition match will be available to all residential, full-time students admitted to Georgetown College after graduating from the schools beginning in fall 2020.
These exciting new partnerships provide students the unique opportunity to further their education at an institution which aligns with the mission of their secondary education, while maintaining the cost of that education for those students and their families.
“Many wonderful students from Lexington Christian Academy and Christian Academy of Louisville have attended Georgetown College over the years and found the same excellence of education, preparation for careers and graduate school, and close relationships with their teachers that they experienced during their high school careers,” said Dr. Jonathan Sands Wise, VP of Enrollment Management at Georgetown College. “When President Will Jones came this summer and asked us to come up with imaginative new ways to get more students who can succeed at Georgetown College, a closer partnership with LCA and CAL just made sense. It is our hope that by making a Christian higher education more affordable, we can encourage many more students to come and explore what they are called to do and who they are called to be at Georgetown College.”
These schools and Georgetown College prepare students to fulfill God’s calling through Christ-centered education, focusing on the student’s mind and heart. The institutions’ equivalent goals and model for learning serve as the basis of these exciting, new partnerships.
Both institutions recognize the importance of a Christian education and believe this partnership will better serve those students looking for just that.
