    I think high school is more important than college because high

    school is really what makes you an educated person. By the time you

    get to college, youve got the basis of a strong education. I think

    that La Salle gave me that.

    For over 150 years, La Salle College High School has provided a

    college preparatory education for young men in the Philadelphia

    area. La Salle boys are taught to be critical thinkers who are well

    prepared academically, able to communicate effectively, and lead

    confidently. These qualities, combined with the Lasallian commitment

    to rigorous learning, result in an impressive list of college admissions as

    well as a significant number of National Merit-recognized students and

    Advanced Placement Scholars. In fact, La Salles number of National

    Merit Scholars consistently puts it at the top among Catholic and private

    schools in the Delaware Valley.

    The things that we will remember about La Salle are the passionate

    and selfless individuals who have made this place more than just a

    school. Our teachers and mentors have shown us that happiness is not

    found in doing extraordinary things; rather, it is found in doing

    little things with extraordinary love.

    Within the academic program you will find the collective

    work of a faculty that is grounded in the mission of Lasallian

    education, while, at the same time, understanding the rigorous

    demands of a college preparatory school. Mentors as well as

    educators, La Salles dedicated teachers drive a challenging and

    innovative curriculum. The faculty and staff look into the core of

    each boy and listen using every resource to gain assistance.

    They affirm and empower young men to discover their God-given

    potential and realize that life is an amazing journey.

    Our students are very supportive of each other. Whether it be athletics

    or in areas of fine arts or music, you will find classmates supporting

    the talents of fellow students. There is an overwhelming sense of pride

    and respect among the student body for the skills of one another.

    B r o t h e r R i c h a r d K e s t l e r, F S C 6 0President

    With over 50% of the student body participating in an

    athletic program that features sixteen sports, it is no surprise

    that La Salle has won over eighty titles in the past decade.

    The sports feature athletes who are students first and strive

    for not only competition, but also respect, teamwork, and

    community. The leadership instilled in the boys by their coaches follows

    in the footsteps of our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle. From what

    they learn on the playing field about analyzing problems and having the

    courage to face them, these young men are able to go out into the world

    with a sense of responsibility and a well-developed character.

    La Salle College High School shared a campus with La Salle

    College until the fall of 1960 when it moved from 20th Street

    and Olney Avenue to its present campus in Springfield Town-

    ship, Montgomery County. The school was built on the former

    Belcroft estate of Clarence E. Brown and with the move, La Salle

    College High School remained in close proximity of the city,

    but had greater space in which to grow and develop.

    Three new athletic fields, an environmental study area, and a walking

    path were developed on 30 acres of adjacent land acquired in 2007

    bringing the total campus property to 84 acres. A four-level, 40,000

    square foot academic addition now houses classrooms and science

    labs, a chapel, a campus ministry center, a counseling center, a study

    commons, and a second technology center.

  • First-Class F A C I L I T I E S

    My son transferred to La Salle from another private school. I have been

    very impressed by La Salles facilities and the many resources available.

    From the SMART Board technology to the Microsoft IT Academy and

    computer labs to the expansive athletic programs and facilities, we feel

    that our son is in an environment that is helping him to reach his fullest

    potential academically, athletically, spiritually, and as a young man.

    The 84-acre campus of La Salle College High School provides

    the finest facilities available in Catholic education today. In the

    last twenty years, the school has added over 100,000 square

    feet of space dedicated to academics and the arts and has

    acquired 34 acres of land that have provided six additional

    athletic fields. All of the classrooms and science labs are new or

    have been completely renovated and feature SMART Boards along

    with integrated technology. The campus-wide wireless infrastructure

    and thirty servers support a network of 1,400 users and over

    400 computers.

    Following in the footsteps of our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle,

    we took part in service, where we put our faith into action. They were

    the journeys where we set out to touch the hearts of others; rather,

    we returned having our own hearts touched in a more profound way.

    They were experiences where we found God in the most unlikely places,

    where we discovered, in a very tangible way, that everyone matters.
