History[edit]

In July 2001, Wahlert High School and all Dubuque Catholic elementary schools and Catholic early childhood centers joined to become one system under the name Holy Family Catholic Schools. This step was taken in an effort to continue making Catholic elementary and secondary schools in Dubuque available and accessible to all those who choose Catholic education.
