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 has more than doubled in the past twenty years, rising 30 percent in the past nine years alone. We are now the third largest Catholic high school in Minnesota, having reached our long-standing strategic enrollment goal of 700-750 students. The Open House experience at DeLaSalle is often 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.
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, innovative Global Advantage Program, our 1:1 Technology Advantage, and more.
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 120 years. We prepare students to participate in a future not yet known.
Open House for Prospective Families
Wednesday, January 5, 2022, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Spend an evening with us on the Island! After a brief introduction by the Admissions Team and the Principal, your family will have the chance to walk through the building and learn about DeLaSalle from the people who make it such a vibrant community - the students and teachers. You will be able to choose from a variety of presentations spanning every academic department along with activities, college planning, campus ministry, and more. Stay for a while after to have dessert and meet some other potential future Islanders!
Live Virtual Open House
In reaction to the challenges posed by the pandemic in the 2020-21 school year, we offered two Live Virtual Open Houses for the Class of 2025. Over 300 families logged on to take a look at DeLaSalle, and we decided to once again offer the virtual visit as a way to get a taste of the De community!
On Monday, December 6, families had the chance to hear from DeLaSalle staff members as well as from current students about what sets our school apart from the rest through a series of livestream sessions on academic subjects, activities, school culture, and more. This highly interactive and customized experience is a one-of-a-kind virtual offering that you will not find at any other high school.
