Tuition Assistance & Scholarships
While the amount of financial aid available varies from year to year, DeSales strives to make Catholic education affordable to all school families. Families receive assistance based on their qualification for aid.
DeSales utilizes the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment for its financial aid application and verification process. Parents are responsible for completing the application by the deadline established each year. Students must have completed the enrollment process in the winter/spring in order to receive a determination of aid from DeSales.
For incoming freshmen, the enrollment process begins in early February, when acceptance letters are mailed. Families then attend Freshmen Registration Night, where they receive enrollment materials, including information regarding financial aid.
DeSales High School is very blessed for the charitable support of alumni and friends who wish to provide support to the young men who attend DeSales.
Named scholarships are an excellent way of honoring the life of a teacher, friend or loved one. Contact the Director of Advancement at (502) 883-2438 if you are interested in establishing a scholarship at DeSales.
