Fine Arts Scholarships

Service Through Music Scholarship

The philosophy of the Mount St. Joseph Academy Service Through Music Scholarship Program is centered on the recognition and development of superior musical ability through performance. Scholarships are offered in Voice, Piano, and Instrumental Performance. In addition to their performance responsibilities, music scholars are expected to take Honors Music Theory and are encouraged to take AP Music Theory. Scholars may also enroll in the Music History and American Musical Theater courses. It is expected that music scholars will participate fully in all music activities for which they are qualified. Music Scholars are evaluated by the music faculty each year.
