St. Edmund's Academy is proud to partner with the Fund for Advancement of Minorities Through Education (FAME) of Pittsburgh in their mission to "educate, empower, and embolden African American youth to become student ambassadors of today, leaders of tomorrow, and stewards of their communities." Students entering Grades 3-5
are eligible to be considered for the prestigious FAME Scholar program at St. Edmund's Academy, provided the family meets the FAME guidelines for financial need. Additional information about the FAME Scholar program can be found on their website at www.famefund.org.
Students applying to St. Edmund's with hopes of entering as a FAME Scholar follow the exact same process outlined on our admissions page for all applicants, but with earlier deadlines. All prospective FAME Scholar files must be complete with the online application, school records, teacher recommendation forms, and student visit by February 1, 2019 in order to be considered for the 2019-2020 school year. Students must also take the admissions assessment on Saturday, February 9, 2019.
The Admissions Office then provides the list of accepted candidates to FAME, who then begins their interview and selection process.
Families will receive final decisions from FAME in March/April 2019.
