“We are over-the-moon proud,” says Colorado Academy College Counselor Sara Purviance about CA Senior Walt Jones, who has been named a recipient of the prestigious Boettcher Scholarship. “It is a truly extraordinary honor,” she says.

The coveted award is one of the oldest and most prestigious merit-based scholarships in the State of Colorado. It covers the cost of a student’s tuition, fees, and books for eight semesters at a four-year Colorado university or college. Boettcher Scholars, on average, are in the top two percent of their class and exhibit their strengths through leadership and service. Each year, 42 high school seniors from across the state receive this honor. He is CA’s first Boettcher Scholar since 2005.
