Bannister Academy is Giving Away Scholarships for SY 2011-2012

At Bannister Academy, we’ve realized that education isn’t just about students learning from teachers. It’s also about teachers learning from students. That’s why we have lofty aspirations for our students. We don’t just want to teach them. We want to be inspired by them.

That's why Bannister Academy is giving out two full financial scholarships for one male and one female child this school year, 2011-2012.

Do you know children who inspire you? Do you know children who make you want to be a better person? Do you know children who you are SURE will make the world a better place someday? If so, let us know about them.

We don’t think that we’re going to change the world. But we’re sure that some kid will. We just want to meet that kid, and hopefully, be part of his or her story.
