Tuition and Financial Aid Philosophy

As the first Lasallian school in the country, Calvert Hall values the uniqueness of each young man. Each student brings a distinctive perspective, belief, idea, and creative approach, that when shared with others, help form Men of Intellect, Men of Faith and Men of Integrity. Calvert Hall believes that each young man who has the potential to succeed at The Hall should be allotted the opportunity to experience a Catholic, Lasallian education.

By providing financial assistance to eligible young men, Calvert Hall continues to fulfill St. John Baptist de La Salle vision and mission. With support from numerous benefactors, Calvert Hall is able to provide financial assistance to more than 35% of our student body. These students recognize the possibilities available at Calvert Hall and use the gifts provided here to prepare for their futures. Calvert Hall is grateful for the alumni whom pass along the brotherhood through their generous donations to The Hall.

Tuition for the 2017-2018 Academic Year is $15,650.
Tuition for the 2017-2018 La Salle Program is $24,050.

In addition to tuition, a $175 non-refundable registration fee is required when a student enrolls or re-enrolls; and a $150 retreat fee is added to the above tuition. A graduation fee of $275 is added to the above tuition for senior year only.

Tuition for the 2018-2019 Academic Year will be announced by February 2018.
