A separate and confidential process, our Tuition Assistance Program is often an important item for families. We encourage families, regardless of if they think they can afford the tuition at Justin-Siena or not, to apply through our Admissions Process for admission, and to also apply through our Tuition Assistance Program through Private School Aid Service (PSAS).
Central to the mission of the De La Salle Christian Brothers is to provide a human and Christian education to the young, and to make it accessible for those of limited means. Saint John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the De La Salle Christian Brothers, was a visionary in the world of education. In an effort to remain consistent with our Lasallian mission, Justin-Siena High School is dedicated to providing students with the education and access that they deserve.
Justin-Siena’s Tuition Assistance Program requires strong partnership between the school, parents, and students. Parents commit to paying tuition at a level that the school determines to be affordable, and students commit to utilizing school programs to help them reach their fullest potential.
Families should direct questions regarding our Tuition Assistance Program to John VanHofwegen, our Director of Finance, at 707.255.0950 ext. 604.
