Financial Aid Information

Tuition costs shouldn't stand in the way of your son attending La Salle Institute.

Can we afford a private school education for our son? This is a very common question asked by parents as they decide whether or not to seek a private education for their child. At La Salle Institute the answer to the affordability question is YES!

La Salle Institute was founded in 1850 to serve a growing immigrant population taking residence in Troy, NY. To help middle class families continue to send their sons to La Salle, significant funds in the form of financial aid are made available to both current and new students every year. These grants are made available based on need, assisting families who would not otherwise be able to afford the entire cost of tuition to La Salle. 

How do I apply for financial aid?

There are two ways ways to apply for financial aid:

  1. Complete and return the Fast and Free Finanical Aid form and return it along with a copy of your most reent federal income tax return and W-2 wage statements.
  2. Complete the Parents Financial Statement. There is a processing fee of $48.00. La Salle Institute's school Code is 4527. Once your application is processed online, La Salle Institute will receive a summary report which we use along with a copy of your current year US income tax return and W-2 (wage statements) to determine your eligibility for aid.

If your son will be a new student in September, he must be accepted for admission to be considered for financial aid.

If he is a current student at La Salle and you received financial aid this school year, you will not automatically receive aid the following year. It is necessary that you reapply each school year.
