List of 6 items.

  • Tuition Assistance

    Need-based tuition assistance is available to all students in grades 9 through 12. Interested families should submit and application through FACTS Tuition Management using the APPLY NOW button below.
    The FACTS application looks at many factors such as household income, family size, region, housing costs, auto expenses, healthcare costs and more to calculate a recommended calculated award. FACTS does not make final award determinations. The application and calculated award amount are then reviewed by the La Salle Financial Assistance Committee who will assess all components of the application, both quantitative and qualitative, and make a final award determination.
    Award determinations are issued by the Business Office in accordance with the schedule located under the Important Dates section of this page.

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 6 items.

  • When should I apply for tuition assistance?

    New students applying for admission should apply at the same time they apply for admission. 9th grade students who apply prior to December 31st will be considered in the Priority Applicant Pool and will receive their determination on the same day acceptance notices are issued.
  • What will I need to apply for financial aid?

    The application process will take approximately 1 hour once all supporting documents have been gathered. It is important to submit all supporting documents to avoid delaying the review process. No application will be reviewed without submission of all supporting documentation.

    Applications submitted on or before December 31st will be required to submit:
    • 2023 Form 1040 and all supporting schedules
    Applications submitted after December 31st will be required to submit:
    • 2023 Form 1040 and all supporting schedules
    • 2024 W-2 and/or 1099s
    Non-traditional wage earners (e.g. small business owner, individuals on disability) may be required to submit additional documentation not outlined above
  • Do I need to reapply for aid each year?

    Yes, all students must submit a financial aid application each year. The application will be reviewed with strong consideration provided toward the amounts received in past years.

    Returning students should apply by February 17 in order to receive their award determination in a timely manner.
  • What happens if my application is submitted after the deadline?

    Late applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis after the initial application deadline. Applications will be reviewed with respect to the funding that remains available. Accordingly, it is strongly encouraged to submit your application prior to the deadline each year.

    Returning students who previously received aid but apply late may experience a reduction and/or elimination of prior year awards, as funds are not held and will be redistributed.
  • Will my award change between years?

    Every effort is made to maintain the same award level between years for each recipient, however, an application must still be submitted each year. Material changes in a household’s financial situation may impact the award amount, either increasing or decreasing.
  • Are there any other sources of assistance?

    All sources of aid provided directly by La Salle Academy are described throughout this page. There are, however, some third-party organizations that offer assistance to student’s seeking to attend La Salle. We are proud to partner with these groups, though each will have its own application process and qualifications to receive assistance that La Salle is not involved with.

    The largest source of such assistance comes from various parishes throughout the state. While not all parishes have such programs, we would encourage you to ask your pastor if they have pathways to help support your child’s continued Catholic education.

    If you are part of any other group that will help support your tuition, please have them contact the Business Office at and we will be happy to work with them to ensure this assistance is reflected in your net tuition obligation.
