KEES brochures are available in the Guidance Department. The KEES award is available to all St. Henry students who obtain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and are residents of the state of Kentucky. Students attending certified Kentucky high schools can earn scholarships based on their grade point average (GPA) for each year of high school and bonus awards based on their highest ACT score achieved before graduating from high school. Students must attend an eligible Kentucky post-secondary institution to receive the funds. To be eligible for a KEES yearly award, a student must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident
  • Be a Kentucky resident

Students must have an annual 2.5 or higher GPA for the base amount of the scholarship and a 15 or above ACT score or equivalent SAT score for the bonus award. Students must qualify for at least one base award in order to receive the bonus award. There is no application to complete. The Guidance Department at St. Henry District High School is required to submit all pertinent information to the state of Kentucky in June of each year. Note: To keep the full award during the college years, the student must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the end of the freshmen year. Following this adjustment period, a student must achieve and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA to keep the full KEES award. Anything below these cumulative GPAs will result in lesser monies received for the following award period. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority usually mails letters out by September each year notifying students of their award status. For more information on the KEES Program or the student’s award go to Students will need to register and create a User ID and password to access their information.
