Thank you to the 384 families who visited DeLaSalle at our two Open Houses for Prospective Students and Families on October 30 and January 17. We encourage students who were unable to attend an Open House to schedule a visit at DeLaSalle.
We’re so glad that you are interested in our school. You share that interest with families from all parts of the Twin Cities. Overall enrollment in the 2017-2018 school year is stable, at its highest levels in 45 years. This school year, we welcomed 203 9th graders and 20 transfer students, numbers in each category that were ultimately capped due to the school reaching its long-standing strategic enrollment goal of 760 students. The Open House is the best opportunity for parents and students to take a first-hand look at a one-of-a-kind high school, and discover why this is the best possible high school for so many.
We are Catholic and Lasallian. We are college preparatory and challenging. We focus on academic accomplishment, yet place a higher priority on the spiritual, ethical, and personal development of each child. We are urban and authentically diverse. We are structured, yet innovative. We bring people together as a community by first taking time to know the gifts and hopes of each student. We have a proven record of success over 118 years. We prepare students to participate in a future not yet known.
Open House visitors will learn about our mission and our vision for the next four years, as well as specifics about our college preparatory curriculum from teachers in each department. Additional sessions are offered in college guidance planning, our Catholic, Lasallian heritage, the comprehensive Student Activities program, financial aid and scholarships, our 1:1 Technology Advantage, and more. Add good treats and good conversation and the night will provide a good starting point for inquiring families.
What a great opportunity to learn a lot about our school! Please join us!
