This school is one of the greatest8 Catholic schools in Michigan. The education and the status you receive upon leaving DeLaSalle is unbelievable. It has a reputation that has been known for many years recently there has been a reported problem at DeLaSalle.. The problem has been blown way out of proportion from overly demanding parents. Things will get back to normal at DLS. what was reported about DLS was furthest from the truth. Errors were made and are now being turned around. Some speak derogatory about DLS because they simply can't afford to send their children there and they don't seem to understand that many of us sacrifice and give up vacations cars and other luxuries for the sake of what's best for our children educationally and religiously. I say to the parents who are unhappy move on you will find Nothing Better. Please remember this the Catholic Church and schools are often prayed upon because they are such a strong religious organization. Lutheran Schools Baptist schools Jewish schools have many problems as well. Though no one seems to report these problems to the public. For the future DLS students find out for yourself you will not be dissatisfied. God bless and keep an open mind to the truth.

Bishop Foley Catholic provides the students with an opportunity to excel academically, as well as spiritually! The teachers & staff are very caring and personable. Many extracurricular activities are available, which helps build bonds amongst students. There is truly a sense of involvement! The school is so family-oriented. I feel secure sending my sons there. I cannot say enough good things about BFC!

Excellent private Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition. My father, two brothers and I all graduated from DLS. Strong academic program. Varied extracurricular offerings. Values-based learning environment. Prepares young men well for college and life. I am an advocate and supporter.
