The entire family of all prospective students are invited to tour the campus, meet teachers and students and enjoy presentations by the La Salle band, drama club, Student Life, the Parent Association and numerous other clubs and organizations. La Salle High School is a college preparatory, co-educational, Catholic institution, located in Northeast Pasadena on a ten-acre campus with surroundings conducive to learning and to becoming a member of the Lasallian family.
As La Salle High School begins it’s 56th year of academic excellence, 710 students returned to school and are enjoying an exciting year. “We believe the education we deliver to our students is of the highest quality, offering a very broad and deep academic program with 15 AP courses and 14 Honors classes. We field 22 varsity sports teams along with an extensive visual and performing arts curriculum, honor and service societies, student clubs and organizations, student television broadcasts and student publications as well as a very inclusive Student Life program. “We provide a healthy, safe and warm community atmosphere for all our students steeped in the Lasallian traditions of educational excellence,” said Brother Christopher Brady, FSC, La Salle’s new principal.
La Salle is proud to be a Lasallian School – an educational institution that draws its philosophy and inspiration from the Christian Brothers whose reputation for excellence in education extends back to 1680. “Our nurturing environment, developed from a 350-year Christian Brothers’ educational tradition continues today. We strive to carry out the Mission established by our founder, Saint John Baptist De La Salle, ‘to give a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor,’” said Brother Christopher.
La Salle’s curriculum pursues a rigorous balance between college preparatory courses, religious education and enrichment opportunities. It is also committed to a values-based preparation for college that flows from a commitment to religious principles. Service learning is built into the curriculum during each of the four years. During the last five years, 99.5% of La Salle graduates have gone on to college with nearly 90% going to four-year institutions.
What’s more, the readers of the Pasadena selected La Salle as the Best Private School in Pasadena Weekly.
La Salle is accredited by the Western Catholic Education Association (WECA) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
