Malone Scholarship

All Malone Scholarship Awards for the 2020/21 school year have been allocated


Mountain Academy is proud to be one of 50 schools in America who are part of th eMalone Scholarship Program.  The Malone Family Foundation was founded in 1997 by Dr. John C. Malone, a well-known communications and media executive and investor, and his family, with one principal objective: to improve access to quality education for gifted students who lack the financial resources to best develop their talents. The Malone Family Foundation funds scholarships for identified talented and gifted students with financial need on our Jackson campus.


Who’s Eligible?   Students applying for admissions to grades 7-10 who meet the following criteria:


  • Be a citizen of the United States
  • Meet all admissions criteria for the Jackson campus
  • Show superior motivation for academic excellence evidenced by grade reports and test scores
  • Demonstrate financial need to qualify for funding of at least 30 percent of tuition through the tuition assistance process


How do I apply?    The application process for a Malone Scholarship is the same as the regular admissions and flexible tuition process with the addition of academic testing that must be done at the Jackson campus. This testing visit can be scheduled through the admissions office (admissions@tetonscience.org). If an applicant is not awarded a Malone Scholarship, they are still eligible for our flexible tuition program.
