Office of Admission
DeLaSalle is a Catholic high school which seeks to create a community of students from various economic levels, academic abilities, racial communities, and ethnic backgrounds.
In the Lasallian tradition founded by St. John Baptist de La Salle, the school strives to facilitate personal success and also to prepare students to be of service to society.
Vice President for Enrollment
We are proud that so many young men and women succeed while at DeLaSalle (and for years after). Your family can be assured that, once we admit a student to DeLaSalle, we exhaust all available resources to maximize opportunities for success. DeLaSalle does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender or religion.
Realistically, however, no high school can provide what every student needs. In light of this, DeLaSalle reserves the right to decline admission to students whose educational, behavioral, or attitudinal needs prevent them from learning what DeLaSalle seeks from its students.
We do not offer programs for students of low academic ability. Additionally, students with a history of behavioral difficulties will not be served well by this institution, and parents of these students should seek a more specialized school. In recent years, approximately 75% of ninth grade, and 55% of transfer applicants have been offered admission.
We believe that you deserve a sound Christian environment where all students are urged to develop values of faith, discipline and service. A Lasallian school exists within the larger tradition of the Catholic Church. DeLaSalle is, therefore, a religious high school, and spiritual development is regarded as a primary educational goal.
All students, Catholic and non-Catholic, are required to take four years of Religious Studies courses, perform a minimum number of Christian Service hours and attend school liturgies.
