  • DeSales is a Roman Catholic high school of the Diocese of Rochester which provides students with a faith-inspired education based on excellence in soul, safety, scholastics and sports.
  • DeSales exists to ensure a Catholic education is an option for future generations in the Finger Lakes.
  • As a school founded in the Catholic faith tradition, it is critical that we remain true to the teachings of our church.
  • The church has proclaimed the teaching and practice of peace and justice to be an essential part of our religion.
  • DeSales’ uniqueness stems from its size and the academic achievement of the student body.
  • Operating within an intimate atmosphere is conducive to a desired, close interpersonal faculty-student relationship.
  • We believe that we must develop the spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth of the student; education is the shared responsibility of the Church, our school, the student, the family and the greater community; we must be faithful to Church teachings and committed to the service of God’s people; in providing college preparatory academics, while offering a broad range of athletic and other extra-curricular programs; in enrolling a growing, diverse student body; we must strive to produce a graduate, who is intellectually inspired, confident and well rounded; and in promoting a commitment to civic service and leadership, as well as strength of character.
