Holy Family Universal Scholarship Application

To be considered for scholarships, grants or financial assistance for Holy Family,
an application for enrollment is required. Please complete the
application for enrollment before proceeding with the scholarship application.

Scholarship Directions

In addition to the need-based tuition assistance granted through our financial aid program, Holy Family Catholic High School is proud to offer scholarships that recognize students’ leadership, volunteerism, academic achievement, involvement in (non-athletic) extracurricular programs, and connections to our community. 

This application does not have a progress save feature. If you begin the application, you will want to complete it entirely before pushing the submit button. If you close the window at any time, you will need to begin the application from the start.

While GPA is requested for this application, we do so only because a few scholarships require a minimum GPA. It alone will not be the sole determining factor and should not be a deterrent from completing the scholarship application. Character and involvement matter!

An Application for Enrollment is required in order to be considered for any scholarship. Some scholarships may also require a separate TADS tuition assistance scholarship completion.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this application. Good luck!
