Catherine McAuley High School, Maine’s only Catholic college-preparatory high school for young women, has established two academic scholarships to be awarded annually to incoming freshmen.  Each scholarship is based upon the results of the High School Placement Test (HSPT), which the school administers three times a year to eighth graders applying for admission.

Claire Reid, the daughter of Gerald and Colleen Reid of South Harpswell, has been awarded McAuley’s Academic Excellence Scholarship, receiving $25,000 over the course of the four years she attends Catherine McAuley High School.  Scoring in the 99th percentile nationally on the HSPT, Reid is the top-ranking student for those seeking enrollment in the Class of 2017.  She is currently a student at St. John’s Catholic School in Brunswick.

Theresa Wunderlich, the daughter of Jim and Susan Wunderlich of Saco, is also the recipient of McAuley’s Academic Excellence Scholarship, receiving $25,000 over the course of the four years she attends Catherine McAuley High School.  Wunderlich is the second top- ranking student for those seeking enrollment in the Class of 2017, also scoring in the 99th percentile nationally on the HSPT.  She attends Saco Middle School.

Developed collaboratively by the school’s Faculty, Administration, and Board of Trustees, these scholarships reflect McAuley’s commitment to academic excellence and the hope that each student becomes a ‘Woman of Mercy’: well educated, self-disciplined, enriched by diversity, able to lead and willing to serve others.
