LC Scholars Program

A select cadre of incoming freshmen who demonstrate an exceptional pattern of achievement, leadership qualities, and a predisposition to have a favorable impact on the common good are named to the LC Scholars Program.

Through this program, LC Scholars are given ongoing mentorship, a funded international travel experience, summer enrichment, and more. Each year, Loomis enrolls approximately six freshmen as LC Scholars, a distinction they hold throughout their four years at Loomis. All applicants to the 9th grade will automatically be considered for this program.

Community of Scholars

LC Scholars experience numerous enrichment and leadership opportunities and participate in meetings with each other, the head of school, and other leaders in the community during the course of their four years on the Island. LC Scholars will be encouraged to pursue additional enrichment opportunities through the Norton Family Center for the Common Good and the Alvord Center for Global & Environmental Studies.

During the summer between sophomore and junior years, LC Scholars receive a funded opportunity to travel abroad either through the Alvord Center for Global & Environmental Studies or another comparable program of the scholar’s choosing. In recent years, LC Scholars have traveled to Belize, Costa Rica, Cuba, France, Fiji, Ghana, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Thailand, and more.

Summer Program

LC Scholars are invited to attend the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program’s Enrichment Program for four weeks tuition-free prior to the start of their freshman year. This opportunity positions freshman Scholars to thrive the moment they arrive in September for the academic year while also providing them with the chance to interact, bond, and study alongside other current and incoming students.
