Families of West Catholic students can apply for a variety of scholarships. A large number of named scholarships are available for students that meet the necessary requirements.
General Criteria for Scholarships
- Most scholarships have financial need as a requirement. If financial need is required, you must complete an application via Blackbaud (School ID: 13306). Click HERE for instructions on how to apply or visit our Applying for Aid page to learn more about Blackbaud.
- The scholarship selection committee shall be comprised of the president of West Catholic High School, the comptroller of the Catholic Secondary Schools and other administrative faculty members.
