Welcome to De La Salle High School!
Our mission of providing quality Lasallian, Catholic 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.
De La Salle High School was founded in 1965, and for five decades, 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.”
A 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.
As 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,
