La Salle Academy

  • 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.
