An invitation to become a Trustee Scholar, SCA academic scholarship program, is awarded to freshmen who achieve a rank of 92nd percentile on the TACHS examination and meet attendance and behavioral requirements. Students must place SCA on her list of schools on the TACHS in order to be considered for a Trustee Scholarship. A Trustee Scholarship is equal to 55% of tuition. Students must follow the prescribed course of study and meet academic and behavioral standards to remain eligible. Students may enter the Trustee Scholar Program at any level.

Do students have to wear uniforms at SCA, if so where are they ordered from?
Students are required to wear a school uniform. Uniforms are ordered through Flynn & O'Hara. 
Does SCA require an additional application outside of the TACHS Exam in order to apply?
