Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

DeLaSalle families have the chance this spring to host an exchange student from a Catholic school in Argentina. The 16- and 17-year-old students attend Colegia Santo Domingo en la Sierra, a bilingual Catholic school about three hours from Buenos Aires, and will be in the Twin Cities from April 15-June 3. Hosting an exchange student gives your family a unique opportunity to build a special connection, explore new customs, and share American culture. If you are interested in hosting, please email Brad Casey, Global Advantage Program coordinator.

For new students (and new students with older siblings), families will receive an email between April 1-15 with a link to access a tuition agreement. The agreement will reflect any financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships for the upcoming year. Families are asked to respond to our Business Office by following the instructions in the email and on the agreement, selecting a payment option, banking information and electronically signing your acceptance of your agreement. We request a response from all families by Saturday, April 21, as all payment plans for 2018-19 begin in May.  If you are a new family to DeLaSalle and do not receive an email by the 15th, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601.

For returning students (without an additional child to be added to the tuition account), and as part of our continuous enrollment process, you will receive an email showing a summary of tuition and financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships. TADS will use the same banking or credit card information provided by families for their 2017-18 agreement. Additionally,TADS will use the same basic payment plan arrangement that families chose for the 2017-18 school year as the payment plan for the 2018-19 school year. If families need to change any banking or credit card information, their payment plan, or have any other questions, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601 by April 21 to make those changes for the 2018-19 school year.

Tuition agreements will only be sent to families that have completed the registration and, if necessary, the financial aid application process for 2018-19.  Emails will not be sent to families that have not completed the required processes.
