College Scholarships | Xello

During the 2023-2024 academic year, Wahlert Catholic High School adopted a new college and career platform by the name of Xello.  Xello is an online program that helps students build the skills, knowledge and plans to be future ready.  All students grades 6-12 have been introduced to the program this school year and have been invited to continue accessing the platform at their own pace. Counselors continue to utilize this in working with students on college and career planning.

Informational flyers and details on college scholarship opportunities received by Wahlert's Counseling Office are posted directly to the online college and career readiness platform, called Xello.  On a frequent basis, Wahlert Catholic High School's Counseling Office updates both local and national scholarship and award information to the College Planning section of Xello.
