Six seniors at the prestigious Solebury School are recognized each winter by faculty who present them with a Founder’s Academic Award in four academic areas where they excel. Two additional awards are given in the areas of visual arts and performing arts.

Students each receive a certificate and $250 to purchase items for the relevant academic department. Their names are added to permanent plaques in the Boyd Dining Hall and in the Theater.
