What makes The De La Salle School unique?

The De La Salle School is a non-tuition driven Catholic middle school in the Lasallian tradition for young men in grades 5 through 8. Our students are economically disadvantaged, many from troubled school districts and most are immigrants or sons of immigrants.

The De La Salle School receives close to 90% of its funding through individual, corporate and foundation gifts. We are an IRS recognized 501c3 tax exempt not for profit, and all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.  The De La Salle School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs.
The 69 young men who are attending The De La Salle School in the 2017-2018 school year, like all of their predecessors, are of limited financial means, but of unlimited hopes and dreams.
