TUITION AND FEES FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
Enrollment Fees: $1,430-$1,530
Registration Fee: $550 (Due March 25, 2020)
Registration Day for the 2020-21 school year will be held at De La Salle on March 25th between 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Incoming students demonstrating academic excellence may qualify for academic scholarships. The criteria used to determine scholarship recipients include elementary school grades, standardized test scores, conduct and effort grades, and De La Salle High School Placement test scores. Academic Scholarships are only available to incoming eighth and ninth grade applicants. All incoming eighth and ninth grade applicants who apply before the November 30th deadline and take the January placement test are considered. Qualified students are invited to submit an application by the Admissions Director of De La Salle High School.
FINANCIAL AID AWARDS
Financial aid applications will only be reviewed if the student is accepted and fully registered. De La Salle High School students in need may apply for tuition assistance by submitting an application through FACTS once they are officially accepted to De La Salle High School. De La Salle High School does not grant full tuition waivers. Several financial aid scholarships are awarded each year to incoming students who demonstrate academic excellence and financial need. Recipients of financial aid awards are notified in May by the Office of Admissions. Families are encouraged to meet with the Director of Admissions to discuss their financial situation in addition to submitting the FACTS online application.
Aid is not automatically renewed; a new application must be submitted every year. Returning families will not be eligible to reapply for financial assistance if a prior year balance remains on the student’s account. All financial aid awards are reviewed and approved by a financial aid committee.
Generally, aid is not granted for more than half of tuition and does not cover registration, uniforms, or books.
