Bradford Christian Academy offers several merit based scholarships. The amount of the scholarship varies from year to year depending upon the funds set aside by the Board of Directors and the number of qualified applicants for each scholarship. Scholarships are not transferrable and are renewed each year based on the recipient’s maintenance of the scholarship criteria.

The Hasseltine Leadership Scholarship

The Hasseltine Leadership Scholarship is named after Bradford native Ann Hasseltine (1789-1826) who, along with her husband, Adoniram Judson, pioneered missionary efforts overseas. Candidates for the scholarship must be juniors or seniors and are considered through nomination by high school faculty, administration, and co-curricular coaches and directors. Students are assessed according to their performance during freshman and sophomore years as outstanding students who embody leadership skills, consistent dedication to academics, and observable commitment to their Christian faith. Exemplary student leaders draw people to them in positive ways, move the community forward in defined areas, and collaborate across the student body and with BCA faculty and staff to build unity and consensus. Students wishing to be considered for the Hasseltine Scholarship must seek and receive nomination from a high school teacher, administrator, co-curricular coach or director, and complete an application. Applications are available through a high school administrator.

Newell Honors Scholarship Program

Newell Scholars are accepted into the program as freshmen only. The program requires highly academically motivated students to carry a course load of 5 Honors and/or AP level classes each year of their high school program, as well as maintain a cumulative 3.3 unweighted GPA. All Newell scholars also must be candidates of the AP Capstone program, taking six AP courses throughout their high school career including AP Seminar and AP Research. Newell Honors Scholars, who complete all requirements of the program over the four years of high school, will receive a one-time $2,000 scholarship paid directly to their college to support the student’s college enrollment and academic future and to honor the academic commitment, determination, and achievement demonstrated at Bradford Christian Academy.
