Scholarships

The Scholarship program at St Andrew’s School celebrates our proud tradition of assisting students who would benefit from and contribute to our academic and co-curricular programs as well as to the School community in general. This aligns with the vision of our founders who established the School to provide access to elementary children of the industrial classes within the principles of the teaching of the Church of England.

We seek to support students with opportunities to study at St Andrew’s School which they may not otherwise have had, attracting a diverse range of students to the School. Our program recognises students’ personal qualities, academic achievements and their potential across a range of areas.

Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate a positive contribution in all aspects of School life as well as maintain a satisfactory standard of academic achievement.

St Andrew’s School is currently offering the following Scholarship opportunities.

Stewart Family STEM Scholarship
Bright Futures Scholarship
Academic Scholarship
Music Scholarship

If you would like to tour the School prior to applying, tours with the Principal can be arranged by contacting the School Enrolments Managers, Helen Charles and Sophia Saracino, on 08 8168 5511 or by email at enrolments@standrews.sa.edu.au

Please note: all Scholarships are open to both external and internal students except Bright Futures which is open to external applicants only.

Stewart Family STEM Scholarship

The Stewart Family STEM Scholarship at St Andrew’s School is available to girls wishing to study at St Andrew’s School in Year 4 through to Year 6. Students in Year 3 are eligible to apply. Successful applications may receive a remission of up to 25% of the base tuition fees each year to the conclusion of Year 6 at St Andrew’s School.

This Scholarship has been generously made available by the Stewarts, a former family of St Andrew’s School. Their daughter Ava showed exceptional skills and unbridled passion for all aspects of STEM. With the knowledge that females are traditionally underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the Stewarts wanted to make a difference to a young girl’s life by offering her the opportunity to explore and enhance her interests in STEM subjects through attendance at St Andrew’s School.

Applications have now closed and will re-open 2022.

Bright Futures Scholarship

The Bright Futures Scholarship is available to external students only who are in Year 2 in 2022. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who is keen to extend themselves by being involved in many areas of the school. Students will be asked to write a letter to the Principal, explaining why they would like to be a part of our community, how they will make a difference as a student and what extra activities they would like to be involved in.

The Bright Futures scholarship is available to students in Year 3, 2023.

Closing date for applications is Friday 4 March 2022.

ACER Academic Scholarship

The ACER Academic Scholarship is available to students in Years 4, 5 or 6, 2023. Students who will be in Years 3, 4 or 5 in 2022 are eligible to apply. Successful candidates may receive a remission of up to half of the base tuition fees each year to the conclusion of Year 6 at St Andrew’s School.

The aim of the Academic Scholarship is to recognise and broaden students’ academic abilities ultimately supporting them to reach their full academic potential.

As part of the applications, students will be required to participate in a standardised test which is externally moderated. The ACER Scholarship Tests are used across Australia to identify academically able students for the award of a scholarship with the tests designed to rank applicants, finely differentiating the top end of performance. Applicants are required to demonstrate a range of skills such as the ability to interpret, infer, deduce and think critically. The tests are not curriculum based and do not test the ability to retrieve learned knowledge, nor are they diagnostic. More information about the test and Scholarship process can be found here.

Applications will open 1 September 2021 and close 20 January 2022.
