DeLaSalle's Mission & Vision Statements
We, a diverse community of teachers, learners, alumni, parents and volunteers, comprise DeLaSalle High School. Our mission is to serve students from Minneapolis and surrounding communities who seek a high-quality, values-based, academic preparation for life. We at DeLaSalle High School fulfill this mission, in part, by respecting and affirming our heritage as a Catholic High school in the Lasallian tradition.
DeLaSalle High School, the only Catholic high school in the city of Minneapolis, has for more than a century sustained and advanced the educational vision defined more than three centuries ago by St. John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (informally known as the Christian Brothers).
As demonstrated by the unwavering and enthusiastic commitment to attract students from various economic levels, academic abilities, racial communities, and ethnic backgrounds, DeLaSalle High School extends beyond the facilitation of academic success to the preparation of students to be of service to the local, national, and global community both during and after their formal education.
DeLaSalle High School, Minneapolis, seeks to create an environment in which the youth of our urban area are empowered and enabled to create for themselves and others a functional, literate, safe community.
