Bishop Mora Salesian High School is blessed with the generosity of benefactors that continue to make a Salesian High School education a reality through scholarship for the young men entrusted to our care. All scholarships at Salesian High School are need-based, and require proof of income eligibility determined during the financial aid process each year.
The school makes every effort to meet the needs of all students. Student participation in foundation grants, with the exception of tuition assistance through the Catholic Education Foundation, is determined through the school's financial aid process.
If you are interested in establishing a funded scholarship at Salesian High School, please contact Mr. Alex Chacon, President, at (323) 261-7124.
