Eighth Grade Unites to Raise Money for Test Prep Scholarship


Established in 2011, the Eighth Grade Class Gift is a student-driven initiative whereby the graduating class makes a meaningful, tangible gift to the school to mark their final year at St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s. After much careful consideration—and having recently sat for their own SSAT exams—the Class of 2018 decided to raise money to fund a test-preparation scholarship for the benefit of a future Grade 8 student. The campaign lasted one week and raised $2,414. Every eighth grader participated and many parents supported the effort by matching their student’s donation.
