Scholarships

La Salle offers a number of merit scholarships to incoming ninth-graders.

Scholarship applications will be available on October 28. Applications and letters of recommendation are due to La Salle by January 18.

Unlike financial aid, merit awards are based on demonstrated academic ability, achievement, leadership, creativity, and service. Students may apply for both merit scholarships and consideration for financial aid*. Tuition assistance is based on documented financial need, as assessed through FACTS and the Financial Aid Committee.

Applicants may apply for one or more merit scholarships, but recipients will receive no more than one award.
 

Merit scholarship recipients are selected by the Scholarship Committee. While there are many deserving candidates for scholarships, awards are limited and not all applicants will receive an award. Applicants will be notified of scholarship determination results in the enrollment packet.

*In order to be considered for financial assistance, families must apply through the FACTS online application process.
 

Merit scholarships are awarded 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 freshmen only.
  • Scholarships range from one-year, $1,000 awards, to four-year, $2,500 awards ($10,000 total).
  • In order to retain multi-year scholarships, a recipient must maintain strong academic standing.
  • The Scholarship Committee will consider applicant’s 7th and 8th grade GPA, HSPT score, extracurricular activities, recommendations, and quality of the applicant’s essay.
