The Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF) manages charitable funds for both donors and nonprofits, awards grants, teaches best practices to nonprofits and their boards and convenes peer groups large and small to provide networking, higher education and economies of scale in Essex County Massachusetts. In their mission of community outreach, they have compiled an extensive list of available scholarships for student on the North Shore and Essex County.
ADELINE TOWER COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP
We honor the work of teachers, first responders and others whose professional expertise strengthens our local communities, expands the worlds of our children and keeps our local towns safe. Tower School recognizes the impact of these professionals with a scholarship of up to 50% of Tower's tuition for their children. Applicants may also qualify for supplemental tuition assistance to bridge the gap between the scholarship and a family's ability to pay the remaining tuition.
As part of their service learning program at Glen Urquhart School, eighth graders spent Tuesday morning working with The Food Project.
The Food Project partnered with Glen Urquhart School in 1991 to use half of GUS’s newly renovated, 7,000-square-foot greenhouse. The Food Project has built a national model of engaging young people in personal and social change through sustainable agriculture. GUS middle school students participate in the Food Project’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Seedlings are started in the GUS greenhouse, grown at Long Hill Farm in Beverly, and distributed through farmers’ markets and hunger relief organizations across the North Shore. Each year over 40,000 pounds of vegetables are grown in the greenhouse, without chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
The Board of Trustees has unanimously elected Clair Ward to become Shore's seventh Head of School as of July 1, 2017. Ward is currently the Head of the Valley School of Ligonier, in Pennsylvania.
In the message to the community announcing the selection, the President of the Board of Trustees, Jenn Borggaard, wrote, "An experienced teacher, administrator, and leader, Clair is well prepared to succeed long-time Head of School Larry Griffin and lead Shore into its next chapter."
Tomorrow’s world is going to demand very different kinds of things of our children. Fortunately, Glen Urquhart is a very different kind of school.
At Glen Urquhart, learning isn’t confined to a book, a classroom, or even our 23-acre campus. For GUS kids, learning starts from within. When children leave GUS, they go as original thinkers with the academic readiness to meet the demands of the most rigorous high schools and colleges, and the global perspective to succeed in the new world.
This April students at Glen Urquhart School will travel to the Dominican Republic, where they will spend one week working and playing with over 200 children from an NPH orphanage. For the past nine years, Glen Urquhart has been working with NPH, (Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”) a charitable organization, which serves orphaned and abandoned children in South America.
Fifth graders at Glen Urquhart School, in Beverly, spend their year exploring the theme “The Land.” They climb a mountain, visit a granite quarry, look for signs of the last ice age in the local landscape, devise and construct models of earthquake-resistant buildings, and learn about how humans use the resources of our earth. Their capstone experience is a 4-day stay at Chewonki’s Outdoor Classroom in Wiscasset, Maine.
The Glen Urquhart Summer Program integrates explorations of educational, hands-on workshops with the easy-going feeling of summertime fun for children ages 4-14. With 23 acres of woodlands and fields in Beverly Farms and just one mile from West Beach, the campus is an ideal location for a great summer experience.
