De La Salle offers students a diverse and challenging curriculum designed to provide a thorough education rooted
in the traditions of the Catholic faith.
Courses are designed to teach advanced
reading, writing and critical thinking skills, and combined with creative and
performing arts classes, enable students to achieve their educational goals. Graduates will be fully equipped to deal with the rigors of
even the most selective universities.
Focus on Learning
Our academic requirements are designed to meet or exceed the
admissions requirements of public and private university systems nation-wide,
including the University of California. In order to achieve this goal, we place
a strong emphasis on both liberal arts and science courses. Naturally, we offer
a broad range of electives in many different areas.
Dedicated to Excellence
We have a dedicated and highly skilled faculty who love
to teach. All of our faculty and staff are
trained in the ideals of our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, and are
committed to teaching and mentoring the boys in our care. In fact, many of our
faculty members are De La Salle alumni who have returned ‘home’ to pass on
their knowledge to a new generation of Spartans. We are all proud to be a part
of the Brotherhood that has served us so well for more than forty years.
