De La Salle Academy has its philosophical roots in the teachings of the Gospels and of Saint John Baptist De La Salle, the founder of the Christian Brothers and the patron saint of teachers. The philosophy stresses the education of the total child by providing youngsters with an accelerated and enriched curriculum. Giving the students an exposure to the beauty of the arts and sciences and an understanding of deeper religious and spiritual values of all faiths and traditions enables them to develop a personal view of the duties and responsibilities of living in harmony with the world around them.
We believe that ...
De La Salle Academy, as an independent middle school in the Lasallian tradition, must be directed toward the development of the whole child: body, mind, heart, and spirit.
During the years between childhood and adolescence, a special sense of confidence in one’s self and an understanding of the diversity of people need to be nurtured, along with spiritual and social values.
Children endowed with superior talents who come from lower-income families should be given special attention and opportunities.
All youngsters must accept the responsibility of continuing to develop the talents given them by God and to share those talents with the community.
