Underpinning the Pulaski Academy community is diversity that affords our students the perspective required to become global citizens. We believe that to prepare students for the real world, our community should mirror that world with a student body that is coeducational and representative of religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic diverse backgrounds. To achieve this goal, Pulaski Academy has developed the Community OutReach (COR) Scholars Program. The COR Scholars program at PA plays a key role in fulfilling our mission by attracting students who are extraordinary leaders and scholars with outstanding character. COR Scholars are to be citizens of the student body both in conduct and achievement and consistently demonstrate resolute character by upholding PA’s core values. They must show that they will contribute to the school community in a positive and constructive fashion showing promise as a member of our future alumni community. Candidates for the COR Scholars program are new applicants entering 6th through 12th grade and will be selected based on upon the strength of their admission application, which considers transcripts, teacher recommendations, standardized test scores, a student questionnaire, and a personal interview. PA COR Scholars are renewed on an annual basis.
Pulaski Academy offers four scholarships that have been made available to students who meet specific criteria for each. PA was selected as the state’s only Malone Scholar school by the Malone Family Foundation. The foundation grant provides ongoing scholarships to gifted students with financial need to attend Arkansas’ leading college preparatory school. The Connor and Lindell Families both generously endowed scholarships that provide support to multiple students who exemplify academic excellence and present a financial need. Upon the untimely loss of their son, and PA alum, Anthony Riggan, the Riggan family created a memorial scholarship in his honor. This scholarship provides support for a student that exhibits extraordinary character. These scholarships offer outstanding students the opportunity to receive an excellent education, to have their academic and creative talents nurtured, and to flourish in a learning community they might otherwise never experience.
