DeLaSalle families may now apply for need-based financial aid for the 2022-23 school year. Click here to begin and eventually submit your completed application to Tuition Aid Data (TADS), the company that analyzes family financial need for DeLaSalle. The deadline to apply for next year is Friday, February 25, 2022. Families are required to file a TADS application every year.

DeLaSalle thanks its families for meeting this very important February 25 deadline. If families have questions about completing the TADS application, they are encouraged to contact TADS Customer Service support directly or reach out to Mr. Ron Rice at DeLaSalle.

pen and paper imageThis program is surely one of the hallmarks of DeLaSalle. The school is proud to maintain its historic, Lasallian legacy of providing education to young men and women from a broad range of personal financial circumstances. Founded in 1900 in large part to provide English language skills and Catholic education to the rapidly-growing number of immigrant families moving into Minneapolis from Europe, DeLaSalle sustains its mission to this very day. We provide college preparatory education for a student body reflective of the socio-economic breadth and rich diversity of the community.

We are heartened that, primarily due to the wonderful development support of our alumni, friends, and many parents, a full DeLaSalle tuition is still less expensive than at most Catholic or private high schools in the Twin Cities. We don’t charge extra fees for technology or registration as many schools do. We appreciate the sacrifice that parents are making to send their daughters and sons to DeLaSalle, and we know that sacrifice to be even transformative in its broader lessons of what community can truly be.

Approximately half of our students pay a full tuition, and others pay a reduced tuition with grants determined by analysis provided through the TADS application. We set out to balance our budget each year, but we are a separately incorporated non-profit. No outside group subsidizes DeLaSalle’s operating budget in any way. This is yet another reason why a family’s support of activities such as the Christian Brothers’ Gala in October and/or commitment to working in the Islander Foundation program is so very much appreciated. We depend on partnering with our hard-working parents to make this work. We are all in this together, and that’s why we’re appreciative of parents meeting application deadlines and staying current with charged tuition. As of mid-January, over 98 percent of our families are current with their tuition obligations, true partners on behalf of all students. We’re grateful!
