Future Leaders Scholarship

EDS has always been a place for great foundations. Make it the place for your future leader.

Future Dreamers.. Future Creators.. Future LEADERS.  Leaders are listeners, learners, innovators, problem solvers – the kind of students that make a difference in the life of the school. They are people of integrity with hearts to serve. These are qualities that we build and celebrate in our students at EDS as we nurture children to grow and thrive.  

Come see how your future leader can be inspired today!  We are making it possible for your child to become a future leader at EDS through this special, merit and academic-based scholarship competition.

The program offers three tiers of awards for students entering the sixth or seventh-grade for the 2024-25 academic year.

  • Lead Scholars (75% of tuition)
  • Trustee Scholars (50% of tuition)
  • Head of School Scholars (25% of tuition)

Award winners who remain in good standing academically and behaviorally will maintain their scholarship through graduation from Episcopal Day School.

All participating students, whether current students or prospective students, will submit application materials by April 1, including testing, transcripts, and teacher recommendations. EDS will offer a testing date for interested applicants on Saturday, March 23 on our Walton Way campus. Finalists will participate in a competition day on Saturday, May 4, which will be a fun-filled and interactive morning that will give each student an opportunity to shine. 

Award winners will be notified by May 8.

To get started, please contact EDS Director of Admissions, Karen Lilly at klilly@edsaugusta.com or by calling 706-733-1192.  She will send you application materials and be able to answer any questions you may have.
