Awards and Scholarships

Recognition for your effort

At Guido, we like to recognize when students display outstanding talents and abilities in academics, leadership, and athletics. For this reason, there's a myriad of awards and scholarships available and it's our privilege to hand these out. Some of the awards are competitive in nature, and only available to one student at the end of the year, while others are accessible to every student.
