Grace Scholars at Watkinson, created in 2018 by founding donors Janice and David Klein, is a fund designated to enable 8th grade graduates of Grace Academy, in Hartford, to enroll at Watkinson for high school.
Watkinson has a long-standing relationship with and commitment to Grace Academy, which was established in 2010. Over the past six years, Watkinson has funded five Grace Academy graduates and since 2015 has provided more than $400,000 in financial aid to Grace students.
The students that benefit from Grace Scholars at Watkinson demonstrate the qualities and characteristics most closely associated with Grace Academy and Watkinson School: determination, an exemplary work ethic, grace under pressure, and a clear sighted vision of the possibilities that await a young woman of substance when they aspire to succeed.
Please consider pledging your support and following the girl through her educational journey.
