In spring 2023, St. Luke's Episcopal School was blessed with a generous gift from the Holt Family that resulted in the creation of the Holt Family Endowed Scholarship. This scholarship is available to two incoming or returning rising 5th - 8th grade students at St. Luke's for the upcoming school year. Each award is worth $10,000. 

The scholarship shall be awarded for one academic year to the two recipients. A student who has received the Holt Family Endowed Scholarship and who otherwise meets the eligibility criteria may apply for subsequent academic years.

Scholarship recipients are expected to embody the pillars of Scholarship, Citizenship, and Leadership at St. Luke’s by maintaining a high academic average, participating in extracurricular activities, demonstrating excellent character both inside and outside the classroom, and promoting the mission and values of St. Luke’s.
