In June, several scholarships are awarded each year to graduating Carver Christian High School students in recognition of their personal efforts and achievements in academics, athletics, art and for their contributions to our community. Our Scholarship Committee reviews applicants according to each scholarship’s criteria and chooses the awardees.
We are grateful to the generous donors who faithfully provide funds to make these scholarships possible. Several of the Carver Scholarship donors have supported this program since first graduation class in 2007. If you are interested in establish a new Carver award or scholarship, please contact Linda Smythe (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will assist you on behalf of our students.
