Students may take advantage of opportunities to visit DeLaSalle for an entire day. Visitors are paired with a host student, perhaps a friend, perhaps someone De finds to match the visitor’s interests. Come see classes in action and get a sense of the hallway atmosphere. And…lunch is on us! A parent can register online at http://delasalle.com/admissions/visiting-delasalle/ or by contacting the Office of Admission at least three days in advance of requested visit.
