If writing an essay, please choose 2 of the 5 below.
1. Thinking about your unique qualities and attributes, how do you feel you can contribute to our school and enhance our community beyond being a strong academic student?
2. If you could spend a day with any historical or fictional character, who would it be and why, and what would you do for the day?
3. Explain what the term “leader” means to you. Do you envision yourself being a leader during your high school years? How so?
4. When our school gives a student a scholarship award, we consider it an investment in the future. Explain why you think our school should invest in you as a potential member of our community.
5. Perhaps the most important unwritten “rule” in our school is kindness. Discuss what that means to you.
