Application Fee: $50 (waived for alumni and current families)
Tuition:  $13,800 per student in grades 6-12


  • $75 New Student Registration Fee (due from new families with enrollment agreement)
  • $150 – Senior Fee (due from families of seniors with enrollment agreement)

Scholar Days at the Mount

An exemplary education is more affordable than you might think! Three new scholarships are available to new rising sixth through ninth graders applying for admission to Mount de Sales for the 2020-21 school year. Each scholarship highlights what is unique about the school’s mission:

The Innovate Scholarship is open to students with a keen interest in science, technology,
engineering, or mathematics (STEM).
The Serve Scholarship is reserved for students who have a parent serving in the military or as a first responder.
The Discover Scholarship is for students with a parent who is a full-time Navicent Health employee.

Special Scholar Days give prospective students and their families an opportunity to experience the de Sales difference through fun and educational activities. Students will also take the admissions entrance exam and engage in scholarship-specific challenges. Only students who attend our Scholar Days are eligible for consideration for these scholarships. Additional scholarships and financial aid are available for qualified students.
