Mission Statement

We, a diverse community of teachers, learners, alumni, parents and supporters, comprise DeLaSalle High School. Our mission is to serve students and families who seek a high-quality, values-based academic preparation for life. We at DeLaSalle fulfill this mission, in part, by respecting and affirming our heritage as a Catholic high school in the Lasallian tradition.

Vision Statement

DeLaSalle High School, the longest-standing Catholic high school in the city of Minneapolis, will continue to sustain and advance the educational vision defined more than three centuries ago by St. John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Christian Brothers.

As demonstrated by an ongoing commitment to attract students from various economic levels, academic abilities, and racial and ethnic backgrounds, DeLaSalle extends beyond the facilitation of personal success and preparation for post-secondary education.  Recognizing that individual talents are enhanced by positive relationships and experiences, DeLaSalle forms its students for adult lives of learning, faith, and service to their local, national, and global communities both during and after their formal education.

DeLaSalle seeks to create a future in which the youth of today are empowered and inspired to create for themselves and others communities, founded in excellence, compassion, and purpose.
