Financial Aid and Academic Scholarships

Supporting Education - A Lasallian Tradition
The Board of Trustees, Faculty, Staff, and friends of La Salle Academy strive to make sure as many students as possible have the potential to attend La Salle Academy regardless of their families' financial situation. Financial Aid and Academic Scholarships from La Salle Academy are among the opportunities available to families to help provide tuition assistance.

Academic Scholarships are based on TACHS Exam performance, TACHS Applicant Records highlighting the 6th, 7th and 8th grade records and letters of recommendation. Academic scholarships are only offered to incoming 9th grade students who apply to La Salle through the TACHS Exam. These awards vary in value from partial to full scholarships. See below for the full list.


Financial Aid

(For Accepted 9th Grade Students for the 2017-2018 Academic Year).

Students who receive financial assistance are expected to maintain at least a 75% average and to follow all school regulations & attendance policies in order to continue in the program. Failure to fulfill these requirements will result in exclusion from this program.

Financial aid will be determined on the basis of a family’s need and the availability of funds. La Salle uses an outside company, FACTS Management (FACTS Institution ID #6422), to make initial recommendations for all financial aid applicants. All recommendations are then reviewed by La Salle’s Financial Aid Committee before decisions are finalized.
