Taylor Emmons Scholarship

Honoring a legacy. Transforming a future. One student at a time.
In honor of Taylor Emmons '09, The Out-of-Door Academy, along with the Emmons family, has established The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund. The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund was created to keep Taylor's selfless spirit, concern for others and love for The Out-of-Door Academy alive for generations to come. Each year, the scholarship provides financial assistance for talented students who want a brighter future to experience the many benefits of a college-preparatory education.

The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund provides opportunities for socio-economically diverse students to attend The Out-of-Door Academy. The Scholarship is awarded to a deserving student who demonstrates the highest level of character and commitment to his/her academic, athletic, and artistic pursuits. The scholarship is awarded annually to a rising 9th grade student who otherwise would not have the means to attend. In order to be considered for the scholarship, the student must complete the Admissions Application and be accepted to The Out-of-Door Academy.

This scholarship will cover up to the full cost of tuition for four years. Families will be responsible for paying comprehensive fees. If you are interested in applying for the Taylor Emmons Scholarship at The Out-of-Door Academy, please contact the Admissions Office at (941) 554-5955.
