Essay Scholarship

2023 Essay Theme

 How my education at John Adams Academy changed me.

The Foundation is excited to announce that we are establishing an Academies Scholarship Fund for graduating seniors from each campus to assist with funding the pursuit of higher education. The Foundation supports and encourages all Academy scholars to embrace the American Classical Leadership model of creating great citizens and noble souls who seek truth, are schooled by wisdom, and have the virtue to act on that wisdom. Truth, virtue, and wisdom embody servant leadership, which is pursuing causes greater than self – the very heart of the John Adams Academy mission.  


With this in mind, all senior scholars choosing to participate will be asked to submit an essay sharing "How my education at John Adams Academy changed me." The Foundation board members will review all essays and select a scholar from each campus to be recognized and awarded $1,000 to begin their higher education journey.


We intend to award these scholarships each year, so we request that any parent, grandparent, or other friends of John Adams Academies consider donating to this scholarship fund. Hopefully, the scholarship fund will grow over time, so the size and number of scholarships will increase and stay in perpetuity. 

All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive a receipt for your charitable contribution.   If you have questions regarding the scholarship fund or philanthropic gifts, don't hesitate to contact Kimberly Martin at 916-888-1346.

We appreciate all the support from people like you who advocate the heritage of American truth, virtue, and wisdom.
