Tuition, Financial Aid & Grants
At Seton LaSalle, we believe any family that wants a Catholic education for their child deserves the opportunity. And we firmly believe that cost should never be a barrier to receiving a great education—one that pushes your child to succeed today and prepares them to face the challenges of the future.
We also know that you get what you pay for, so we do not strive to be the cheapest private school in Pittsburgh. Our teachers, faculty, and staff work very hard every day to be the best. Some key points to consider:
- We provide customized financial aid packages to families regardless of income level
- Nearly 70% of our students receive some financial aid or scholarship funding
- Multiple children? Not a problem. We provide significant scholarships to families with multiple children
- We offer two types of financial assistance: Need-based Financial Aid and Merit Scholarships
- The generous support of our alumni and donors provides over $450,000 in funding to the school each year which decreases the tuition charged by over $1,000 per student.
When considering the value of your child’s education—Values Matter. Your family shouldn’t have to choose between a safe, welcoming environment with state-of-the-art technology and your family’s ideals and beliefs. At Seton LaSalle, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver the best of both worlds. In recent years we’ve invested millions of dollars into technology, our facility, and the campus to ensure our students have access to a learning environment and high school experience that will set them up for success.

Sibling Discounts:At Seton LaSalle, we love when siblings can share in the same, great High School experience.

Working with Bridgette Kennedy-Riske will put your mind at ease as she can work with you to create a customized financial aid package to fit your family’s needs.
