Students in class

To be entrusted with the teaching of the young is a great gift and grace of God.

Academics

Here at De La Salle, we pride ourselves on being able to offer a premier college preparatory learning experience. For us, that means teaching the whole student – their mind and their heart – while equipping them with the skills, confidence, character, and knowledge that they need to thrive in college and the world beyond.

As such, we constantly seek ways to evolve and optimize our curriculum so that it is not only diverse and challenging but also meets the needs of our students and an ever-changing world. 

We strive to build out our students’ academic acumen and interests so that they can uniquely demonstrate the scope and rigor of their academic course selection to colleges and universities. Part of this process is encouraging students to find a balance between interest and reach; where they challenge themselves but are also motivated by interest. 

On these Academic pages, you will find more information about our rich and engaging curricula, the programs that De La Salle offers, and how we help students become successful learners.
