Unleashing Potential, One Scholarship at a Time

At Bishop Machebeuf High School, we’re passionate about making quality education accessible for every young mind that walks through our doors. We understand that financial hurdles can sometimes seem impossible, but they shouldn’t stand in the way of a fantastic learning journey. Our financial aid options aim to ease this burden and open up opportunities. We’re proud to say that these programs assist a significant portion of our student body—because every student deserves a shot at the first-rate education we offer. Let’s dive into how we’re making this possible!

Our Financial Aid Statistics

Our financial aid statistics reflect our commitment to making education affordable. A significant portion of our student body, consisting of 114 brilliant young students (70%) —benefit from some form of financial aid, including need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships from Machebeuf and other sources. Among these students, 18% (or 30 students) receive ACE scholarships, and 24% (39 students) are awarded the Schmitz scholarships. 60% of students who receive scholarships or financial aid benefit from the ACE or Schmitz scholarships. The total of scholarship and financial aid awarded amounts to a staggering $1,300,417. This figure is a testament to our dedication to breaking down financial barriers and fostering an inclusive learning environment.

The Impact of Our Financial Aid

Our financial aid programs aren’t just about numbers. They’re about the life-changing impact they have on our students’ lives. For instance, a student from the 2026 class had to transfer schools after her freshman year due to financial constraints. About two weeks into her sophomore year, she reached out, hoping she could return to Machebeuf. Thanks to our ACE scholarships and other financial aid options, we welcomed her back. It’s not just her; the class of 2023 graduates also expressed their gratitude for the opportunities financial aid has provided. One of our proud graduates, Amadeo, credits the support he received at BMHS to his rich educational experiences and invaluable life lessons. Their success stories underscore our mission: to make quality education accessible to all, regardless of their financial situation.
