VB public schools Class of 2018 offered a record $104.7 million in scholarships

VIRGINIA BEACH — Graduating seniors in Virginia Beach City Public Schools‘ Class of 2018 have earned and accepted the highest scholarship amounts of any VBCPS graduating class.

As reported to high school guidance offices, seniors have been offered a record $104,784,639 in scholarships and have accepted $63,910,257 to date, according to a VBCPS news release.

Scholarships granted by in-state and out-of-state institutions to students from all 11 VBCPS comprehensive high schools and Green Run Collegiate are represented in the totals, city public schools officials said.

Class of 2018 scholarship totals exceed the amount offered to last year’s graduating class by $17.2 million and the amount accepted by $5.8 million. The scholarship totals offered to the five previous VBCPS graduating classes include:

  • $87.4 million to the Class of 2017
  • $76.8 million to the Class of 2016
  • 70.3 million to the Class of 2015
  • $42.5 million to the Class of 2014
  • $32.6 million to the Class of 2013

“Earning more than $100 million in scholarships for higher education is an incredible achievement for our graduating seniors, and we join their families in being extremely proud of their accomplishments,” said Aaron Spence, VBCPS superintendent, in the news release.

The school division makes scholarship opportunities and resources readily available to students and families through Scholarship Central. The online, searchable database found on www.vbschools.com lets visitors access scholarship information submitted by school counselors, civic groups, foundations, schools and other organizations. The site is updated throughout the year, officials said.

For information about the Class of 2018’s scholarship awards or Scholarship Central, call the Office of Student Support Services at 757-263-1980.
