De La Salle Academy
Welcome to De La Salle Academy
– a Division of De La Salle High School.
De La Salle Academy is a middle school for boys of academic promise from low-income families in the Greater Concord area. The school is grounded in the belief that a well-ordered and rigorous education is a key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Such an education can prepare students to live meaningful and productive lives and to recognize and fulfill their obligation to contribute to the well-being of the larger community. By focusing on students during their formative years, De La Salle Academy helps boys to lay a foundation upon which to build future success.
The school culture emphasizes citizenship, service, and responsibility, in a loving learning environment created by a skilled faculty and staff. At
De La Salle Academy, attention is consistent, expectations are high, and each boy’s talents are recognized and nurtured, so that students can grow into young men with a positive vision for the future and with the skills to make their vision a reality. By providing opportunities for creativity and exploration, and for leadership and accountability, the Academy orients students toward the pursuit of excellence in everything they undertake.
De La Salle Academy is structured on the proven “Miguel model,” which successfully educates children in low-income neighborhoods in several dozen cities across the nation. It is part of the network of San Miguel middle schools sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers and their associates. The network is named in honor of Brother Miguel Febres Cordero, FSC (1854 – 1910), a native of Ecuador who was the first Christian Brother from the Americas to be canonized a saint (in 1984).
De La Salle Academy is an extension of the Catholic, Lasallian education that has been provided in Concord since 1965 by De La Salle High School. The Academy serves boys from diverse cultures and faiths in grades five through eight. Both the middle school and the high school are sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers of the San Francisco New Orleans District.
