Scholarship Exam Information

Due to the New York State mandatory school closure, we were not able to offer our March 21, 2020 scholarship exam.  Applicants will be reviewed for potential academic scholarships based on their report cards and letters of recommendation.

Prospective students are afforded the opportunity to take a scholarship exam prior to being admitted to La Salle Institute. The purpose of the exam is to help La Salle identify the student’s strengths and weaknesses in the areas of reading, math and language arts. Upon admittance, this information will be used to help the staff and faculty to better serve the student and to provide extra support or advanced opportunity in certain areas. Students who show exceptional promise, scoring a 90% or above, may earn scholarship money for the rest of their years at La Salle.

Scholarship exams are held three times throughout the year. The dates for the 2019 - 2020 school year are listed below.
