From The Beekman School today:

The Beekman School has launched a significant award program to enroll new students. The Beekman School Merit Award will offer a select group of incoming 9th and 10th grade students the opportunity for 50 percent tuition remission for each year they are enrolled at the school.

While The Beekman School is already one of the best values among private high schools in the New York City area, the award was created to make a highly personalized private school education available to students and families who would otherwise be unable to afford it. For Merit Award students who remain enrolled at Beekman for four years, the award could represent more than $70,000 in tuition value.

Additional information is available on The Beekman School blog.
