In the De La Salle Classroom, you will find dynamic teachers that inspire young minds to grow and develop. From eighth to twelfth grade, our faculty presents a comprehensive college model academic program that challenges students to reach their full potential.
“Sports have taught me lessons that I hold dear to my heart. Being a leader is more than just successfully getting the job done. It’s the way you conduct yourself, work with your team, and approach the task at hand. Everyone has a role to play – when all the pieces of the puzzle fit together, we are destined to succeed.”
– Terrance Vincent Jr., Class of 2023
“There is something for everyone at De La Salle! Extracurriculars at De La Salle have given me the opportunity to get involved, form close friendships, and explore my particular interests. The relationships I’ve formed and memories I’ve made through Extracurriculars make De La Salle feel like home.”
– Taylor Michel, Class of 2023
“From the personal classroom attention to the vast offerings of clubs and activities, each student has the opportunity to find their place to thrive. The small catholic co-educational environment truly feels like family. It has been a pleasure to watch my daughter blossom over the past five years. She is proud to soon be a third generation Cavalier!”
– Debbie McLanahan, DLS Parent
“De La Salle excels in the Lasallian core principles of an inclusive community, concern for the poor, and social justice. These principles allow me to firmly make service a part of my day at De La Salle. De La Salle encourages an environment of generosity and love for a community devastated by crime and natural disasters.”
– Anthony Prados, Class of ‘25
