Academic Honors Scholarship

The mission of the North Broward Academic Honors Scholarship program is to attract the best and brightest students to our freshman class. In addition to academic excellence, students must exhibit strong leadership skills and involvement in their school community.  This year North Broward will offer two distinct academic scholarships, The Academic Honors Scholarship, for students new to the school; and the Eagle Academic Honors Scholarship for returning students. A portion of our scholarship funds are reserved for current North Broward students. The eligibility requirements are the same for both awards. Eligible students must apply by January 27, 2017.  

Eligibility Requirements:

1. Candidate must be an entering high school freshman for the 2017-18 school year.

2. Candidates must take the SSAT and report scores to North Broward (see below). SSAT performance is used as a basis for invitations to interview with the committee. The score on the reading and verbal portion of the test is averaged and added to the score on the quantitative (math) portion of the test (50% math, 50% reading/verbal).  

Students are ranked by score and invited to interview based on their ranking.

3. Candidate must demonstrate an outstanding level of academic performance with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent) in a majority of advanced or Honors core academic courses.

Families will be notified within three to six weeks of the interview indicating:

  • the student will receive a scholarship award
  • the student has been deferred to a later date, based on acceptances of first round scholars and scholarship funds remaining
