La Salle College Preparatory - Financial Aid 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 14, 2022.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying for financial aid for a returning student and you also have an incoming student you must follow the instructions for incoming students below.

Financial Aid Availability

La Salle College Preparatory subscribes to the 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. Forms to request Financial Aid are available in the finance office in December for the following School Year. The Financial Aid Deadline (date by which applications must be mailed to a financial aid evaluation company) is different for incoming student's applications and returning students applications. Please see above for those dates. Deadlines for financial aid will be strictly followed. Failure to comply will result in the allocation of financial aid to another student. Please review the Calendar for specific dates.

The School strongly recommends that families begin the financial aid process early. La Salle College Preparatory has allocated dollars for Financial Aid and uses FACTS to evaluate, rank and award applicants according to financial need. Once the allocated monies are used there is no more financial aid. The Financial Aid award is not a four-year award and applicants must reapply every year. The school will notify applicants of financial aid award at acceptance.

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.

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

Presidential Merit Scholarship

The Presidential Merit Scholarship is annually awarded to 10 incoming freshman students who show outstanding academic achievement and potential as indicated through an excellent HSPT score, junior high GPA, response to an essay prompt and recommendations from their current school. Recipients will be awarded a scholarship of $10,000, renewable each year of their attendance at La Salle. Once at La Salle, recipients will be expected to enroll in a challenging academic program that includes Honors and Advanced Placement courses and maintain a minimum cumulative weighted GPA of 3.7 in order to maintain the scholarship. This is a merit-based award; families do not need to apply for financial aid in order to apply for the Presidential Merit Scholarship.

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

Alumni Association Lasallian Heritage Scholarship

The Lasallian Heritage Scholarship is sponsored by the La Salle College Preparatory Alumni Association and focuses on recognizing individual students who embody the tenants of faith, service, and community- pillars of our Lasallian tradition. 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.

The application for the Alumni Lasallian Heritage Scholarship will be available soon via SchoolAdmin. The deadline for applications is January 14, 2022.

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