A Case for the Middlesex Scholars Program

The Middlesex Scholars Program transforms the lives of students by extending the mission of “finding the promise” beyond our Circle.


Finding the Promise


It encourages students to consider their talents, strengths, and interests in the context of the world’s opportunities and needs.

Working closely with the program’s faculty director and supported by financial investment from the School, juniors will brainstorm, propose plan, and pursue individual summer experiences in the belief that the idea that finding one’s promise is an active, energetic, and exhilarating undertaking that lasts a lifetime—but begins with the pursuit of ideas and passions.


We need people in society who are leaders, who are complete people. Middlesex can provide that.”
— John Bacon Jr. ’45, P’72
