St. Laurence High School abides by all policies of the Archdiocese of Chicago and the IHSA. In doing so, St. Laurence High School does not promise or offer athletic scholarships of any kind. Violations of IHSA policy may result in loss of eligibility for the student, coach and/or school. In recognition of our shared ministry, we and other Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago also do not promise, predict or otherwise allude to specific dollar amounts regarding tuition assistance or financial aid before a student takes the entrance exam. We will promote the best attributes of our own school while respecting the legacy and traditions of other Catholic high schools.
