Tuition assistance is available from De La Salle. This assistance is funded directly from De La Salle and its supporters. We receive no outside funding from the Archdiocese of Detroit or parishes/institutions. We will allocate the funds in the order the applications were received, verified, and accepted.

SCRIP is a partnership between non-profit organizations, like De La Salle, and local and national business that results in real dollars to be used for tuition and financial aid. Beginning the program during a student’s eighth-grade year can result in a tuition credit for freshman year. Getting started is easy once you have an enrollment code from Sr. Pat Eeckhout in the Business Office.

Credits earned in the current school year are available to offset tuition for the next school year. More details and help are always available from Sister Pat; contact her at 586-541-6277.
