Established in 2016, the Bigelow Scholarship is awarded to two newly enrolling Grade 7 or Grade 8 students (one day, one boarding) who best embrace the ideals that Mr. John Bigelow sought in all students. These ideals, which Rectory seeks to cultivate in all students, have defined a Rectory student from the School’s inception up to our current day. In Mr. Bigelow’s words, these ideals are:
“To work well, to play well; to think clearly, to speak truth; to win without pride, to lose without rancor; to have courage, and to be kind. This is a goal for the greatest: It is a goal that the least may reach."
--John Brittain Bigelow ‘24
To honor the vision of our founding family, Rectory will award an annual scholarship to two deserving students (one boarding and one day) who meet the stated criteria. The Bigelow Scholarship will be ongoing through the students’ time at Rectory, granted the recipient continues to uphold the characteristics set forth by Mr. John Bigelow.
