Tuition & Financial Aid

2022-2023 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: $25,764

Registration Fee: $500

Student Services Fee: $400

Program & Campus Development Fee: $100

Technology Fee: $25

Emergency Supply Fee (New Students): $30

Graduation Fee (Seniors): $300

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), 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 and Scholarship Information

At La Salle College Preparatory, 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 uses a third-party partner called FACTS to help determine families' eligibility for financial aid. The family’s total income and assets, number of children attending tuition-charging schools, housing costs, medical expenses, debt obligations, and other special circumstances are also considered. La Salle requires both parents (whether divorced, separated, or never married) to complete the financial aid process. 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 13, 2023. 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).

Financial Aid Availability & Notification

La Salle College Preparatory subscribes to the National Association for Independent Schools (NAIS) guidelines governing financial aid. Therefore, financial aid at La Salle College Preparatory is granted solely on the basis of family need and the availability of funds. Deadlines for financial aid will be strictly followed, and priority consideration will be given to families who meet our set deadlines. Families who do not meet our set deadlines may be at risk of losing their financial aid award or not being eligible for an award (new families).

The school strongly recommends that families begin the financial aid application process early. La Salle College Preparatory has allocated limited funds for Financial Aid and uses the FACTS system to evaluate and award aid to applicants according to financial need. It is important to note that financial aid awards are not four-year awards, and applicants must reapply every year.

For new/incoming families, the school will notify applicants of financial aid awards upon receiving their admissions decision.

For returning families, the school will notify you of your award in January, prior to the re-enrollment process.

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. Please see the checklist items on SchoolAdmin to fill out the interest form and apply.

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 $4,000 scholarship that is applied over four years to the Student’s tuition ($1,000 a year). All prospective freshmen applicants are eligible to apply. For the scholarship to be renewed each school year the student must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the School.

Recipients of the Lasallian Heritage Scholarship will be given the opportunity to work with the Alumni Office and the Alumni Board during their time at La Salle. This may include assisting with and attending alumni events and serving as an Ambassador of the Alumni Association for the student body. Exact responsibilities will be mutually agreed upon based on the student’s schedule and availability.

Applicants are evaluated based on the following criteria: leadership/involvement within their community, service, and citizenship. The recipient will be notified by mail in their acceptance packet. The official award will be presented at the recipient’s 8th Grade Awards Ceremony.
