Tuition Assistance & Affordability
NEED-BASED TUITION ASSISTANCE
De La Salle Collegiate High School is dedicated to the Catholic education of its diverse students, including the poor and disadvantaged. We are a college preparatory school inspired by the spirit and tradition of St. John Baptist de La Salle, where learning takes place in the presence of God. Each student is encouraged to develop his faith, character, intellect, and morality. This mission is embodied in the school’s motto: “Builders of Boys, Makers of Men.”
A De La Salle education is an investment in your son’s life, an investment that will pay dividends throughout the rest of his life.
Tuition for the 2023-24 school year is $14,900. We recognize that this is a serious commitment and one that seems out of reach for many families. Fortunately, need-based tuition assistance is available from De La Salle Collegiate. This assistance is funded directly from the school and its generous supporters. We receive no outside funding from the Archdiocese of Detroit or parishes/institutions. We will allocate the funds based on financial need.
De La Salle Collegiate awarded over $2.4 million in aid to the current student body for the 2022-23 academic year.
For Need-Based Tuition Assistance, De La Salle uses a third-party called FACTS. Their role is to collect and process applications and verify applicant-supplied data. The fee to apply is $30.
Once you have submitted your application, FACTS will move the application through various phases: SBM = Submitted, DOC = Documents in process, VER = Verified. Once the application status is verified, the DLS tuition assistance committee will make an award determination and a notice will be sent to the family by email.

What if I am late with my application?
Joe Gerardi, Director of Operations, directs the process. Marina Hyndman, Operations, and Jane Bertelsen, Business Office, are involved in processing applications and responding to parent questions. A committee of school administrators is responsible for making award decisions.
I make too much to qualify for tuition assistance, but I still cannot afford the current tuition for my children. What do I do?
We encourage any family concerned about tuition to go through the financial aid process. We remain committed to finding a reasonable solution to tuition. Once again, we strongly urge families to contact the Admissions Office if they are concerned about affordability.
Can my son earn an athletic scholarship?
No. De La Salle does NOT award athletic or talent-based scholarships. To lower tuition costs, parents may apply for need-based tuition assistance, participate in the SCRIP program, earn an academic scholarship based on the High School Placement Test, or receive a sibling discount. No student receives an athletic scholarship.
ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPSDe La Salle Collegiate offers incoming students academic scholarships based upon how students perform on the High School Placement Test (HSPT) during the fall of their eighth-grade year. These awards are renewable each year as long as the student maintains the cumulative grade-point average listed in the far right column while attending at De La Salle Collegiate. The awards are as follows:
|Percentile||Scholarship||Total over 4 years||GPA|
OUTSIDE GRANTSWe encourage all families to explore financial aid opportunities outside of what De La Salle offers. Many local parishes, churches, and nonprofits are eager to help families in need.
There are also programs available through the Archdiocese of Detroit. Click here to apply for tuition assistance from AOD. Visit AOD Tuition Assistance Process for a full listing of information and details.
