Beginning with the Class of 2000, Valley Lutheran High School graduates have accepted about $17.7 million in scholarships. About 800 of 1,220 graduates (66%) received at least one scholarship. The average amount accepted during this time is $22,096.
Valley Lutheran elects to record only the scholarships accepted by students. Other schools often track scholarships awarded. This means that if a student is awarded scholarships at multiple universities, they will all be counted. We believe that this practice is misleading, as a student can attend only one college at a time and therefore can accept scholarships from only that one college.
