The Office of Student Services supports students in registering for classes, managing student data, and providing academic records. Registrar Shari Gallagher offices in B102, across from the Florance Center and next to the Guidance & College Planning office.

The academic year is two semesters with school days beginning at 8:30am and concluding at 3:00pm. A normal school day consists of eight 44-minute class periods (seven course periods and one lunch period). Events and activities such as: community liturgies and prayer services, guest speaker presentations, pep assemblies, along with Homecoming, Diversity, Social Justice Awareness, and Winterfest enhance DeLaSalle’s school day.

Parent-Student Conferences are conducted at mid-term of each semester. A student’s grade point average (GPA) is calculated using the semester’s final grades.

The fall semester concludes before Christmas Break and the spring semester begins early in the new year.

Students who have completed one full season of participation on a DeLaSalle athletic team, beginning with the fall season of 10th grade through spring season of 11th grade, may apply for a waiver of the PE: Wellness credit. Students who play a sport not associated with DeLaSalle, because it is not offered by the school, may apply for a waiver through an administrative exemption. Students will be sent a link to the waiver application request that must be filled out completely and submitted no later than May 1, 2017.
