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 or by contacting the Office of Admission at least three days in advance of requested visit. Please NOTE that we begin scheduling student visits in November so as to give our wonderful ninth graders two months of transition time to high school.
