Tuition & Financial Aid

2024-2025 Tuition and Fees

The La Salle College Preparatory Board of Trustees meets annually to review and set the tuition for the upcoming academic year. In reviewing our annual tuition and fees, we strive to balance the need to keep any increase to a minimum alongside the need to sustain the overarching excellence of our teachers and programs, all in the spirit of our Lasallian mission and founding.

Tuition: $29,911

Registration Fee: $500

Student Services Fee: $500

Program & Campus Development Fee: $100

Technology Fee: $100

Emergency Supply Fee (New Students): $50

Graduation Fee (Seniors): $350

Important Note: We strongly encourage families to also budget for other non-tuition and fees expenses, such as books ($300-$400/year), uniforms ($250-$300 total), a laptop or tablet device ($300-$1000), lunches, and other optional school-related activities (prom, dances, spirit packs) and costs. Financial aid and scholarships, if awarded, do not cover these types of expenses and should be planned for accordingly.

Tuition Payment Plans: All families have the option to choose between four different payment plans: A One-Payment Option, a Two-Payment Option, a Four-Payment Option, and a 12-Payment Option (Monthly).

Tuition and Billing Platform: La Salle uses an online program called Blackbaud Tuition Management for easy tuition billing and account management. Current families can click here to log in to their Blackbaud Tuition Management account. Click here for additional information about our tuition management program.

Financial Aid Application Process & Guidelines

Financial Aid Overview

At La Salle College Preparatory and in alignment with our Five Core Principles, we recognize that a private school education is a significant investment. Last year, we awarded more than $3 million in financial aid and scholarships. Our Financial Aid Committee reviews all financial aid applications thoroughly, and we strive to assist as many qualified students as possible. Admission decisions and financial aid awards are kept separate, and requesting financial aid in no way jeopardizes your child's opportunity for admission.

La Salle is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application, which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts. Clarity offers a streamlined, mobile-friendly application that can be completed in as short a time as 20 minutes. Additionally, Clarity removes the need to upload your 2022 W2 and 1040 by transferring them directly from the IRS. This reduces the amount of information that you will need to enter manually and makes it possible to complete the application quickly and efficiently.

Financial Aid Policies and Guidelines

  • Need-based financial assistance is available to families demonstrating financial need.
  • The school reserves the right to consider all available parental resources in determining financial aid eligibility and award amounts.
  • Families must reapply for financial aid annually. Financial aid awards are not automatically renewed on an annual basis.
  • Custodial parents are required to complete an online application through Clarity for processing.
  • Financial information from the non-custodial parent may be required. The school reserves the right to request appropriate documentation to verify custodial arrangements and financial information, if applicable.
  • Families are obligated to disclose any additional awards or financial assistance received on behalf of the student as part of their financial aid application. These amounts will be considered in determining the final financial aid award. If an external award is received after financial aid has been awarded by La Salle College Preparatory, the school reserves the right to reevaluate its financial aid award and make necessary adjustments.
  • Applications submitted without complete documentation will not be processed. All custodial and non-custodial parents, when applicable, must provide Clarity with the required supporting documentation upon request. The requested documents may include, but are not limited to:
    • Most recent pay stubs
    • Most recent W-2 forms for all employment
    • Most recently filed federal tax returns: 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ with all schedules
    • Most recently filed business tax return: 1120, 1120S, 1065 (if applicable)
    • Supplemental income documentation: Social Security income, Welfare, Food Stamps, Child Support, 1099-M Forms, Worker’s Compensation, Unemployment, Veterans Benefits, Housing Allowance, etc.
  • Families must adhere to the established deadlines for submitting forms and tax returns. Failure to do so may result in the financial aid application not being processed.

La Salle College Preparatory reserves the right to withdraw or modify financial aid at any point during the academic year if discrepancies are discovered with the information provided by the family.

La Salle Financial Aid Webinar (Recording): To help you navigate our financial aid program at La Salle, we hosted two Financial Aid Informational Nights with our third-party financial aid partner, Mission Enrollment, and its founder and CEO, Alisa Evans. Alisa has decades of financial experience, serving in leadership roles at the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). The below webinars offered helpful financial aid information for families seeking need-based assistance from La Salle.

Merit-Based Scholarship Information

In addition to need-based financial aid, we also offer renewable, merit-based scholarship opportunities for prospective families. Our Presidential Merit Scholarship and Alumni Association Lasallian Heritage Scholarship are merit-based scholarships that require additional steps for consideration. More information on these scholarships can be found below. Merit-based scholarship applications are available on SchoolAdmin (after submitting an admissions application) and must be submitted by January 12, 2024. Note that merit-based awards are only awarded to incoming freshmen (transfer students are only eligible for need-based financial assistance on a limited basis).

San Miguel Scholarship (Full Tuition and Fees Annually)

As a Lasallian school, La Salle College Preparatory is deeply committed to the mission established by our Founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle, and powerfully expressed in the statement contained in the Rule of the Brothers of the Christian Schools:

“Lasallian education strives to respond to the needs of all youth — especially those who are poor, disadvantaged, or disenfranchised — by conducting schools that are economically, academically, and socially accessible to all.”

In support of this mission, the San Miguel Scholarship, named in honor of the first American Lasallian Saint, is awarded annually to up to seven incoming freshmen. This full-tuition scholarship is offered to Catholic students of academic promise whose family income puts them at or below the federal poverty line. The scholarship is full tuition for four years, including waivers of all textbooks, fees, and uniforms, provided the student maintains an acceptable level of academic achievement, contributes in appropriate ways to the School community, and demonstrates financial need on an annual basis.

This scholarship is available for incoming 9th-grade students. The San Miguel Scholarship Interest Form can be completed via the SchoolAdmin parent portal, which is available after submitting an application for admission.

Presidential Merit Scholarship

The Presidential Merit Scholarship is annually awarded to incoming freshman students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and potential as indicated through their junior high GPA, recommendations from their current school, a personal statement, and La Salle honors placements. Recipients will be awarded a scholarship of up to $12,500, renewable each year of their attendance at La Salle. Once at La Salle, recipients must maintain a 3.7 grade point average every semester with no grade below a C-, and maintain an exemplary discipline and attendance record. This is a merit-based award; families do not need to apply for financial aid in order to apply for the Presidential Merit Scholarship.
