Katie McRae Academic Scholarship
We at Newbridge Academy are proud to announce the third of six academic scholarships, The Katie McRae Academic Scholarship!
Katie is currently attending Saint Mary’s University doing a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a double major in Management and Entrepreneurship. She received a $12,000 entrance scholarship for Saint Mary’s University.
“Newbridge was ahead of its time with using technology and online learning in the classroom. The same system that I used at my time at Newbridge is now used at almost any university and gave me a great advantage in university” say Katie about her experience at Newbridge Academy.
“Another thing I learned at Newbridge that helped me a lot was the idea of critical thinking. At Newbridge you were taught to use available resources around you like the internet or think about the problem for another second before asking the teacher for the answer. I find the skills I gained makes me stand out from my peers. Newbridge has shaped my character by making me realize the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.”
Newbridge Academy Headmaster, Jason Wolfe says “I had the pleasure of meeting Katie very early in my tenure at Newbridge Academy and she instantly impressed me with her academic commitment. Katie worked extremely hard and took great pride in her academic success. We are very proud to call her a Newbridge Academy alumna.”
