De La Salle High School

Excellence is deeply embedded within De La Salle.  We strive to help our students reach their greatest potential by enriching their cultural, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual development.
Put simply, we educate the whole person and not just the mind.
Learning happens with every interaction - not only inside the classroom but also outside in the hallways, in our shared spaces, and on the athletic field.
Our ultimate goal is to create good men who understand the value of strong relationships, are comfortable with their emotions, have a deep-seated sense of social responsibility, and can lead with confidence, fairness, and empathy.
Our academic programs are practical, comprehensive, challenging, diverse, and rooted in the liberal arts.
We offer more AP classes than any other school in our area, and our courses are specifically designed to equip graduates with the skills they need to deal with the rigors of even the most selective universities.

My son is now a sophomore at De La Salle, and he finds rigor as well as enjoyment in his classes. The positive environment has allowed him to make connections with teachers and students alike. He enjoys being part of the theater program and has made many friends. As a Catholic parent, I appreciate the opportunities for my son to grow in his faith through his religion classes and through the experiences that Campus Ministry provides (masses at school, retreats, reconciliation, etc.). I know that in this safe, nurturing environment that De La Salle provides, my son is allowed to grow spiritually and academically with full support from his teachers and counselors along the way. I have no doubt that we made the right choice in sending him to De La Salle.

I transferred my son to De La Salle halfway through his freshman year after a difficult start at his public high school, and it is one of the best parenting decisions my husband and I have made to date. Even though he entered the school knowing only a couple of other students, he is thriving socially and seems very happy. We have also seen an improvement in his grades despite a tougher curriculum. We attribute his academic progress to attentive and supportive teachers (they offer extra help after school and during lunch breaks), as well as De La Salle's phenomenal Learning Center. So far, we couldn't be happier with how he is doing, and we are looking forward to seeing him continue to grow.
