2017-18: ONLINE APPLICATION ONLY
De La Salle High School encourages all qualified students of any race or religion to apply for admission.
Since we recognize that the tuition may be a significant financial burden for some of our families, De La Salle's Financial Aid Program has been established to provide financial assistance to those families who qualify.
The De La Salle Financial Aid Program is supported by our generous donor base, tuition, and an endowment established to assist those in financial need. For the 2016-2017 school year, we were able to provide more than $2.5 million in financial assistance to more than 316 students, which is approximately 30 percent of the students at De La Salle.

|The Bishop John S. Cummins Scholarship Program enrolls students with significant financial need, giving them access to a Catholic, Lasallian education, the financial means to achieve it, and the tools to fully participate and excel in high school. The Bishop Cummins Scholarship Program is designed for students who demonstrate academic potential and have expressed a strong desire to attend De La Salle High School, but whose families' income is at or below a predetermined percentage of the federal poverty level.
