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 math/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 fifty years.
