What a blessing that so many families have chosen to join the De community! Our enrollment is the largest it’s been in 48 years, up 30 percent in the past eight years alone. We now welcome families from more than 125 different grade schools across the Twin Cities — from St. Michael to Cottage Grove, from Prior Lake to White Bear Lake.  Almost 600 families with 8th graders contacted and/or visited De last year. Over 400 8th graders submitted an application. We are close to building capacity once again – with enough room to welcome another 175-200 9th graders in the 2019-20 school year.

Please click here for the Key Admission Dates for the Class of 2024. Our first Open House for prospective families is Monday, October 28, with a second Open House scheduled for Wednesday, January 8, 2020. The Entrance Exam and Parent Seminar is Saturday, January 11. The “Early Decision” application deadline is February 14, 2020.

Representatives of DeLaSalle’s Office of Admission have been invited to visit several area grade schools and middle schools through the fall. At some schools, we will offer a 20-minute presentation to the students only. At others, we join a School Fair format and meet both parents and students. We look forward to seeing you soon…
