Watson Family Gateway Scholarships

In March 2021, Frederica Academy announced the establishment of the Watson Family Gateway Scholarship program. These scholarships were made possible due to the generosity of Jane and Jim Watson and their family through the creation of a permanent endowment, which will generate in perpetuity a minimum of $20,000 annually for designated gateway scholarships starting with the 2021-2022 school year.


The Watson Family Gateway Scholarship seeks rising Fifth Grade and Ninth Grade students well rounded in the areas of academics, extracurricular pursuits, community involvement, church or civic activities, and who greet new adventures and opportunities with unbridled enthusiasm. Applicants should embody leadership, commitment, sportsmanship, positivity, kindness, and inclusiveness. Applicants must gain admission to Frederica Academy through the school’s standard admission process. Click here to learn more about the Admission process at Frederica Academy.
