25% School activities & Attendance(Time commitment provided by coach/advisor)
25% Volunteerism / Skill Enrichment / Work Experience(Non-school related activity, scouts, private instruction, sports clubs, employment)
Additional scholarships funded through our partnership with the York County Community Foundation are also awarded through donor-specified criteria.
