Scholarships

La Salle is proud to offer a number of merit scholarships to incoming ninth graders. 

Merit awards are based on demonstrated academic ability, achievement, leadership, service, and creative problem-solving. Scholarships are limited and award recipients will be notified in the enrollment packet mailed to applicants in March.

 Merit scholarships are different than need-based financial aid. 

  • All incoming ninth-grade students are invited to apply for merit scholarships. Consideration of scholarship awards is not based on financial capacity.
  • Students must submit an online application for one or more scholarships.
  • An adult mentor must complete and submit a Scholarship Recommendation Form.
  • Families who wish to be considered for financial assistance must apply for need-based consideration through FACTS, a third party service that analyzes financial information.

Students may apply for both merit scholarships and consideration for tuition assistance. Merit scholarship awards will be included in the total financial aid package award.

Consideration for merit scholarships is based on the following criteria:

  • All students must complete the High School Placement Test (HSPT) in order to be eligible for a scholarship award.
  • Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshman students only.
  • Scholarships range from one-year, $1,500 awards, to four-year, $2,500 awards ($10,000 total).
