Incoming Freshmen

Be your best self. Be a part of something great.

There are countless academic, athletic, and personal opportunities that await you in the Rebel Family. We are excited to push you, support you, and cheer you on as you strive to be the best you can be!


Our students are known for being academically-driven, well-rounded, and kind. If this sounds like you, you’ll feel right at home at Seton LaSalle.


Students take pride in their academic success and are driven by a rigorous, engaging curriculum. We are proud to educate some of the best and brightest minds, consistently producing National Merit Scholars each year, and our seniors are accepted to some of the top colleges and universities in the country. 


Our students like to do a little bit of everything! We have 20+ sports, 40+ clubs, and activities, and 85% of students are involved in at least two of them.  Our teams welcome new members and consistently perform at high levels of competition, and they support each other.  We encourage our students to try new activities or start ones we don’t have!


Students often say that, “Seton LaSalle feels like a family.” That’s because our faculty and staff know and care about the success of every student.  We’re on your team ‒ we are 100% focused on helping you be the best you can be.

Apply for Admission (rolling)
Seton LaSalle has rolling admissions, which means that you can submit an application at any time. At this point in the year, however, we recommend that you submit your application for admission as soon as possible so that (1) we are aware of your family’s interest and can communicate important dates and events to you, and (2) if you apply for financial aid, you can be considered when we have the full amount of funds available. Families who apply later in the year may not have as much aid available to them because it has already been allocated to other families. 
Apply for Financial Aid (March 15 and April 20)
Approximately 70% of Seton LaSalle families apply for need-based financial aid. To apply for need-based aid, you will submit a FACTS application. You may choose your deadline: Apply by March 15 to be considered in the first round of aid allocation and to receive your financial aid package in April. Or, apply by April 20 to receive your financial aid package in May.
Submit your FACTS application here: 
We do the most we can to support every family and will gladly work with you one-on-one. Please reach out to me to schedule a meeting to discuss your family’s customized financial aid package.
Apply for Scholarships (March 5)
Seton LaSalle offers merit-based scholarships where we consider an applicant’s commitment to academics, lived faith and expression of core beliefs, leadership, service, and kindness towards others. The deadline is Friday, March 5.

In addition to SLS Scholarships, there are outside scholarships to which your child can apply. Some of the organizations that sponsor scholarships, such as Junior Achievement, work with our school to communicate scholarship information and deadlines. Other organizations, foundations, churches, etc. may offer their own scholarships but we are not aware of them, so we encourage you to look around to find if there are any other opportunities that your family could pursue.
Please view this link for information about scholarships. We regularly update this page as information becomes available: 
Return the Course Recommendation Form (April 30)
Mr. Tim Zugates, the Director of Guidance, requests grade school/middle school records for each applicant. We review these records and course recommendations from your child’s current teachers as well as your child’s placement test scores (if available) to make recommendations for his/her 9th grade courses. Mr. Zugates will mail this recommended course schedule to you. Your family will review the information, approve it or request changes, and then send it back. You are welcome to meet with Mr. Zugates to discuss any questions, concerns, or goals that you have. The deadline for returned schedules is Friday, April 30.
Review Your Financial Aid Package (May)
By early May we mail your financial aid package that will include any need-based aid (if you applied to FACTS) and SLS merit-based scholarships (if you applied for them). Outside scholarships have varying deadlines and can be applied to your account at any time. If you have questions about your financial aid package, please reach out to us. We want to make a Seton LaSalle experience possible for your family.
