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:

OTHER WAYS TO LOWER TUITION COSTS

Since tuition payments begin in July of the current academic year, students transferring from Seton LaSalle to another school after this date will be required to pay the tuition due to date, plus an additional month's tuition as a transfer fee before records will be forwarded to the new institution.
 

IMPORTANT REMINDER

The Diocese of Pittsburgh has ruled that Diocesan Catholic high schools may withhold credits, transcripts and diplomas, or prohibit participation in graduation exercises or proms, or take other action until financial obligations to the school have been met. Diocesan high school students will not be permitted to register for or return for the following school year until all financial obligations have been met.
