Pulaski Academy offers several scholarships that have been made available to students who meet specific criteria for each. These scholarships offer outstanding students the opportunity to receive an excellent education, to have their academic and creative talents nurtured, and to flourish in a learning community they might otherwise never experience.
The Community OutReach Scholars Program
Additionally, Pulaski Academy has developed the Community OutReach (COR) Scholars Program. We believe that to prepare students for the real world, our community should mirror that world with a student body that is coeducational and representative of religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic diverse backgrounds. The COR Scholars program at PA plays a key role in fulfilling our mission by attracting students who are extraordinary leaders and scholars with outstanding character.

This year so far has been amazing. The teachers are amazing and my favorite is Mrs. Harrison.
My favorite class is math because Ms. Koch is super funny and math comes very easily to me. Football is going very well; we even won the River City 5A Division Championship.
I hope that basketball season will be just as great!
My experience at PA is the best I could ever receive. Truly a great stepping stone for my future in pursuing medicine. Because of my experience at PA, I have a great advantage.
My favorite thing about PA is definitely the community feel. I love the fact that I can name all 90 something kids in my grade! I love the smaller classes that allow me to get to know my teachers and vice-versa. This year I am in choir and I love it!
We just wrapped up our fall choral unit and have moved forward to holiday music. I am also taking Art Through the Ages which has combined my love for history with my desire to be somewhat decent at art.
My favorite things at PA are the welcoming and friendly demeanor of everyone I have met and the overall community-oriented environment.
My favorite teacher is Mrs. Primm; she is engaging and dynamic and makes coming to class an adventure through world history.
