La Salle Academy and Early Childhood Center acknowledges as our central focus the education and development of the total child in a Christ-Centered environment.
We believe the child's experiences garnered in an atmosphere of faith will lead to an awareness that religion is not just a creed to be learned but a life to be lived.
We acknowledge that our students' Baptismal right to the heritage and rich tradition of the Catholic faith cannot be denied.
Ultimately, our purpose is to send forth well-informed, morally conscientious citizens prepared and eager to give responsible Christian witness as well as service to the world.
