The Oneness-Family Montessori High School (OFMHS) of Washington D.C. has announced two new scholarships for 8th grade students who are emerging innovators, entrepreneurs and conscious global citizens, that will enable them to benefit from a Montessori High School education.
The Maria Montessori Scholarship ($25,000) is named for the late Italian physician and educator who founded the philosophy of education that inspires the high school program. The Helen Kutt Scholarship ($10,000) honors the late mother of OFMHS founder Andrew Kutt, who supported and inspired Oneness-Family School from its founding.
“Education is the key for achieving social and economic empowerment and scholarship assistance is often the deciding factor for some students and their parents,” said Andrew Kutt, OFMHS founder.
The school’s innovative approach aims to maximize the progress of every student in realizing and expressing one’s individual gifts and Unique Student™Potential (USP). Kutt has worked with educational innovators Sam Chaltain and Dr. Paul Epstein to design a cutting edge high school curriculum that focuses on high achievement – but without the stress, competition and peer pressure of many large public schools.
“We teach students to analyze and evaluate information, to generate new ideas, and to develop entrepreneurial, cross-disciplinary projects that are presented in real-world settings, added Kutt. “Our graduates will gain 15 core skills that set them on a pathway for success in the complex global economy of the 21st century. Students may pursue the International Baccalaureate Diploma or choose from two other graduation options.
All current 8th graders living in the Washington, D.C. area are welcome to apply for the scholarships. A rigorous application review includes analysis of grades, standardized test scores, participation in available advanced courses, student essays, letters of recommendation, participation in community service and family financial information. The application deadline is January 30, 2017.
Applicants must also submit a Oneness-Family Montessori High School Financial Aid Form – available from the school office. To request a scholarship and financial aid applications, contact the Oneness-Family Montessori High School of Washington D.C. at 301-652-7751 or write firstname.lastname@example.org.
