DIVERSITY AWARDs

As a Catholic high school founded by the Sisters of Loretto in 1924, Nerinx Hall continues to embrace the Loretto belief that diversity enriches. To encourage and support diversity in our student body, the Nerinx Hall Board of Directors created the Diversity Award. The Diversity Award is a monetary award that is renewable for four years.

Eligible candidates for this award must:

  • Be an 8th grade student of color who demonstrates academic excellence, leadership in their school or community, and commitment to service
  • Submit an application for admission.
  • Complete the Diversity Award application 
  • Ask an adult outside of your family to submit a letter of recommendation to diversityaward@nerinxhs.org or U.S. mail to Nerinx Hall, Attn: Diversity Award, 530 E. Lockwood Ave, Webster Groves, MO, 63119.

Applications for the Diversity Award have now closed. Awardees will be notified on Admissions Decision Day, Friday, January 26, 2024.
