North Broward Preparatory School believes there is no limit to what our students can achieve. Our Academic Honors Scholars, a program for students entering grade 9, are encouraged to be ambitious. To reach for their dreams. To step outside their comfort zones and try something new. We ignite their curiosity.

Candidates for the Academic Honors Scholarship are invited to participate in an interview with a member of the Scholarship Committee. During the interview, families learn about the unique educational and leadership opportunities available to students at North Broward Preparatory School.
After the interview, a selection committee identifies finalists who are recommended to receive the Academic Honors Scholarship based on the student’s overall academic achievement and performance during the interview. Scholarship recipients will be awarded and notified by March 1.
*Character Skills Snapshot on the SSAT: North Broward Prep is a place where your child will learn Math and English and Science. Certainly the reason you're seeking to enroll our child here is because you're interested in an education that focuses on instilling character values and encouraging personal growth. Similarly, we know that your child is much more than grades and test scores. That's why we're asking your child to take The Character Skills Snapshot as a part of their Academic Honors Scholarship application. It will give us richer holisitc information about your child, and show us areas where our community can help them grow, thrive, and shine.
