Class of 2022
-September & October
Admissions is on the road! A representative from the DeLaSalle Office of Admission will visit area grade school fairs sharing the De story. Track our progress at “Admission on The Road” or by contacting the Office of Admission.
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. 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.
