For students entering Wahlert Catholic High School from Mazzuchelli Catholic Middle School, more than 40 scholarships ranging from $200 to $1,500 are awarded after the completion of eighth grade. These scholarships are funded by memorials set up by various families and organizations, as well as local business gifts. Holy Family Catholic Schools administers these funds, which all have their own scholarship selection criteria. Scholarships may be awarded on the basis of academic achievement, participation in athletics or fine arts, leadership skills, or financial need. Several of the scholarships have a four-year duration and are maintained through consistent good standing. Many of our supporting parishes also provide a scholarship to a student member.

In addition to scholarships available to current Mazzuchelli eighth-grade students, a limited number of new student scholarships, valued at $1,000 each, are also available for the 2018-2019 academic year to incoming Wahlert freshmen who have not previously attended Holy Family Catholic Schools. Students are encouraged to complete the online application by August 1, 2018.
