Welcome to De La Salle High School!
Our mission of providing quality Catholic, Lasallian education has its roots
in the work of Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651-1719), who founded
schools for the poor and developed the brotherhood of devoted educators
that came to be known as the Brothers of the Christian Schools. De La
Salle knew that education had to address the whole person of each
student and must offer each of them the opportunity to develop
intellectually, spiritually, and socially. He and the early Brothers
began the tradition which we follow, of creating educational
relationships that can truly “touch the hearts” of students.
Salle High School was founded in 1965, and for 45 years now it has
produced men of faith, integrity, and scholarship, in a school community
that encourages the habit of service to others. As John Baptist de La
Salle knew, “no matter how much faith your students may have…, if they
are not practicing good works, their faith will be of no use to them.”
favorite motto developed and shared among Lasallian schools is this:
“Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve.” We subscribe to this motto, and are
committed to helping our young men to develop the skills to be lifelong
learners and the disposition to live lives of real service to the world.
an alumnus, I am honored to be entrusted with the responsibility of
leading De La Salle High School, and I thank you for visiting. I
encourage you to learn more about the amazing students, faculty, staff,
trustees, alumni, and friends who form the De La Salle community. Our
school magazine (the Union) and school newsletter (the Spartan
Spotlight) are posted on this web site, as is frequent news about our
current activities and those of our alumni.
In the spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle,
