The John & Abigail Adams scholarship is offered to students who score in the advanced category in either the Mathematics or English Language Arts section of the 10th-grade MCAS test, and in the Proficient or Advanced category in the other section.

Additionally, qualifying students must have a combined MCAS score on those two assessments that ranks in the top 25 percent of their school district; be a permanent Massachusetts resident; be a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen; enroll in a postsecondary institution full time in the first traditional academic semester after high-school graduation; and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.

“Millbury is extremely proud of the efforts these students, and the support they received from their teachers and their families,” said Principal Tara Bennett. “The level of dedication and commitment to academic excellence demonstrated by these students, speaks volumes about their character and the opportunities provided to them at Millbury High School. I am confident they will continue to find success in their chosen pathway.”
