Admissions FAQ

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. How and when should I schedule a visit day?

    We have visitors regularly throughout the year. Choose a day that best fits your schedule! Plan on an arrival time of 7:45 AM in the main office and pickup time at 2:15 PM in the main lobby. Contact our Admissions Director via email or phone call to set up your visit day. 
  • Q. Do students enroll into La Salle Institute in specific grade levels?

    We accept students from grades 6 through 11. We add students to each grade in our middle school every year. Our largest incoming class of new students is typically the 9th grade, but we always have students enrolling in the 10th and 11th grades as well. 
  • Q. Do I need to take an entrance exam?

    We do not offer an entrance exam. We review each application for admission individually. We believe looking at a student's academic performance, behavior and leadership qualities over a period of time is more valuable than a single exam. A scholarship exam is offered to assist with academic placement and the opportunity to qualify for a scholarship for those students scoring 90% or higher on the test. The scholarship exam is not required for admission to La Salle Institute.
  • Q. Do you offer tuition assistance?

    La Salle offers academic scholarships and need-based financial aid to those who qualify. Please call our Admissions Office to learn more about our tuition assistance opportunities. 
  • Q. Does La Salle Institute offer honors or advanced classes?

    La Salle offers regular level classes as well as honors, Advanced Placement and college-accredited level courses to all of our students. Because we are conveniently located next to Hudson Valley Community College, our students in the upper grades have the opportunity to take classes in a physical college setting or online.
