What is involved in getting a scholarship?
An application is made to the school through the Scholarship application form along with the administrative fee. The applicant will need to supply written documentation to support their application. This application is then submitted to the School Council for scrutiny. The application may then be referred back if there is insufficient evidence.
If successful the applicant will be informed through a letter from the school council. This will be done before the end of Term 4, prior to the year of application.
This procedure may be adjusted if an applicant joins the school during the course of the year, and at the discretion of the School Council.

What standard is expected?
Students awarded a scholarship will be students of exceptional ability. Both full and part-time scholarships are awarded each year. Only students who are able to fit the criteria for the scholarships will be awarded such. Though there are designated scholarships for each year level, those awarded may vary according to the students applying for these scholarships. Candidates for the music scholarships should have had training in their chosen instrument or demonstrate exceptional ability in vocals.
Those students, who apply for scholarships to Macarthur Adventist School, should have demonstrated that they will uphold the ethos of the school and be prepared to market the school through their work and through their appearance at school events.
If you require any further information either about the school or about the scholarship program please do not hesitate to contact the school and speak to the Principal.

Closing date for School Scholarships is end of term 3 of the year prior to application.
