COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY ANNUAL BOOK AWARDS

A number of colleges and universities offer book prizes or certificates to high schools to acknowledge excellence in academics, general or subject specific, leadership in the classroom and in outside activities, including volunteer service, to members of the junior class.

The entire faculty is asked to submit nominees and there is a committee composed of representatives of each department, the counselors, and administrators, which selects the recipients. We make a serious attempt to choose those candidates best suited to the spirit of the college award based upon the criteria provided and staff nominations. There are so many capable students in this class that we know it is impossible to acknowledge each one today.

There is no established connection to the level of competition of the university with the grade point average of the student, except for a few which identify the most capable overall or in individual disciplines such as English, social studies or science. In specific subject areas, the individual department staff makes those selections.

Overview of Schools in Bronxville

Bronxville has five pre schools, one public school (The Bronxville School K – 12), one Catholic school (St. Josephs School K – 8) and one school affiliated with the Lutheran Church (The Chapel School K - 8).

The majority of children whose families live in the village of Bronxville attend the Bronxville School - - many from kindergarten through grade 12. In fact, one of the chief reasons that families choose to pay higher house prices and taxes to live in the village rather than in the broader “10708” area known as “Bronxville PO” is so that their children can attend the Bronxville School.

Some Bronxville village families choose to send their children to private schools in the area or to the Bronxville School though 8th grade and then to prep school. But, by and large, this group is still in the minority. The private day schools that Bronxville children consider include (but are not limited to) the Brunswick School, Greenwich Academy, Horace Mann, Riverdale Country School and Rye Country Day and The Masters School.

Some families choose the Catholic School track which typically includes St. Josephs (K – 8) and then onto other Catholic schools for high school. Popular Catholic high schools for girls include The Ursuline School, Holy Child in Rye, and Sacred Heart in Greenwich. Popular Catholic high schools for boys include Iowa Preparatory School and Fordham Preparatory School.

Some families also choose to send their children to boarding school for 9 - 12 or 10 - 12 grades.  Popular schools include Exeter, Andover, Hotchkiss, St. Paul's, Taft and Choate.

Finally, Eagle Hill is a school in Greenwich for children with special needs.
