Tuition & Financial Aid

Criteria for Receiving Tuition Assistance from La Salle Academy

The mission of La Salle Academy clearly articulates the school’s “special outreach to those most in need.” Seeking to implement this aspect of the mission in a clear and fair way, the school has established criteria to guide the disbursement of the funds allocated in the budget for tuition assistance. Although certain unique situations may necessitate deviation from these guidelines, in general they provide the framework used by the Financial Aid Committee of La Salle Academy to award tuition assistance to deserving students.

Essentially there are two categories of tuition assistance, merit based scholarship and need based financial aid. A young man may fall into either or both of those categories. Regardless of whether the award is merit based or need based, the recipient will be expected to sustain the academic, behavioral, and attendance standards associated with the initial reception of the award. In addition, he will be expected to attend five (5) school sponsored events during the year as designated by the school’s Administration. These conditions will be enumerated in a contract for the year. The student and at least one parent/guardian will sign the contract, a mid-year review will occur, and tuition payments are expected to stay current. Failure to adhere to the terms of the agreement will provide a reason for cutting back or eliminating the amount of aid presented to the student in the following semester and/or the next academic year.

Aid from La Salle Academy can be adjusted downward if the student is the recipient of an external scholarship from another source after the amount initially allocated by La Salle Academy was announced.

Donations from numerous generous benefactors enable La Salle Academy to provide tuition assistance on an annual basis. We are grateful to our alumni and other philanthropic individuals, businesses, and foundations who provide the funds we disburse.
