The DeLaSalle Global Advantage program is inspired by the vision of St. John Baptist de La Salle, who sought to educate poor, working class French children so they could become productive, moral members of society.
More than 300 years later, this fundamental Lasallian mission has not changed. Today, DeLaSalle High School recognizes that participating in, and learning about, the global community prepares students to become successful citizens in the 21st century world.
The Global Advantage Program creates relationships between students and the larger global community. The program puts DeLaSalle on the map as an institution of innovation, offers DeLaSalle students opportunities for international study, and welcomes international students who choose to spend a semester, a year or their entire high school career at DeLaSalle. Through collaborative relationships with universities, DeLaSalle offers students the opportunity to earn college credit through rigorous international travel courses in a variety of subjects and locations throughout the world. In short, the program offers a variety of relevant locations and academic topics and aims to produce student learners with the motto “Curiosity and civility, preparation and participation.”
