Jasmine Dolcescu and Noelle Razee named Vail Christian High School honor scholars to join the Class of 2025

Vail Christian High School recognizes two deserving Eagle County eighth-graders each year as recipients of its Honors Scholarship. Winners are chosen on the basis of grades, standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, written essays and personal interviews. This year’s recipients are Jasmine Dolcescu of Eagle County Charter Academy and Noelle Razee of Vail Christian Academy.

“Many of the valley’s best and brightest incoming freshman applied, representing schools from Gypsum to Vail,” Head of School Steve O’Neil said in the announcement. “Both Jasmine and Noelle showed grit and grace, and their hard work and drive for excellence was evident. They each rose to the top of this intellectually gifted crowd.”

Both students earned merit-based scholarships, providing half price tuition each year until graduation from Vail Christian High School, totaling over $100,000 over four years.

Noelle and Jasmine will be part of the school’s 48-member incoming freshman class.

“Both girls are extremely bright and well-deserving and they have exciting futures ahead of them,” Director of Admissions Heather Downey said. “We are honored to be a part of it. We are incredibly proud of both Jasmine and Noelle, and we are excited for them to join the VCHS family in the class of 2025.“
