Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund

Honoring a Legacy. Transforming a future. One Student at a Time.

In honor of Taylor Emmons, Class of 2009, 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 will provide opportunities for socio-economically diverse students to experience an independent, college preparatory education at The Out-of-Door Academy’s Upper School. The Scholarship will be awarded annually to a deserving eighth grade student who otherwise would not have the means to attend. They will learn in an environment which allows students to strive to achieve their highest academic goals and build character through a balanced program of academics, the arts and athletics. If you know of a deserving student for this unique, four-year scholarship to The Out-of-Door Academy's Upper School, please encourage them to apply immediately.

This scholarship will cover up to the full cost of tuition for four years minus 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) 554-3400.
