The Steve Morris Scholarship Program was created to honor the memory of Steve “Mo” Morris, who taught and coached at NYA for 29 years. Each year a golf tournament is hosted raising scholarship funds to support student access. Each year a rising eighth grade boy and girl are chosen to receive scholarship support that will continue through twelfth grade. To date more than 35 students have been supported by this endowed scholarship program. Please join us for the 19th annual SMGT in September 2021 at Falmouth Country Club.

The Soirée

The Soireé is an auction that is held each spring. This is both an important fundraiser for the school and a fun event for the community. Proceeds from the Soirée support current school year operations, and a special project that is identified each year. The funds raised from the 2020 Paddle Raise will support student financial aid and our NYA teachers. The 2020 event was held virtually due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Head of School Dinner

Each fall, the Head of School hosts a dinner each fall to acknowledge donors who have contributed $1,000 or more to The Academy Fund and volunteers to thank them for their leadership.
